National Highway Traffic Safety Administration to Update Policy for Automated Cars

Jeff Brody

The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration plans to establish a strategy to update the policy for self-driving vehicles, FCW reported Friday. NHTSA is also considering modifying the existing standards to better assess the safety of automated cars. "The agency intends to explore modifications to the standards with a continued focus on safety," NHTSA said in a notice.

The agency's existing standards for safety testing do not take automated driving systems into consideration. NHTSA intends to address this gap by conducting further research on self-driving cars. Stakeholders may submit input on automated driving as responses to NHTSA's notice on the Federal Register through July 29.
