Abstract

This chapter outlines the key developments and issues in the U.S. national, state and local automated vehicle (AV) policy landscape. There are a range of perspectives among U.S. government and private-sector stakeholders. Despite the wide range of viewpoints, the authors aim to underscore where there is agreement on key policy issues, and where there are opportunities for more discussion. Federal policy to date has focused on a voluntary system for ensuring safety of AVs. Federal regulatory actions have been limited to guidance documents, although the government recently proposed a safety framework for the automated driving system (ADS). States have varied in their approaches to AV policy and this chapter summarizes research coding state activities on a spectrum from more restrictive, such as California, to more permissive, such as Arizona. In the final section of the chapter the authors discuss the role of interstate coalitions. This Chapter is organized into five sections:
  • Section 1 Introduction
  • Section 2 National Landscape for Federal AV Legislation and Regulation
  • Section 3 State Automated Vehicles Policy and Regulation
  • Section 4 Regional Coalitions
  • Section 5 Conclusion
