Chao Says Revised Fed Guidelines on Self-Driving Cars Are Coming

Chao Says Revised Fed Guidelines on Self-Driving Cars Are Coming Chao Says Revised Fed Guidelines on Self-Driving Cars Are Coming

"Yeah, cars can go fast, but management has to be faster", explained Tanguay.

The Donald Trump administration plans to unveil revised self-driving vehicle guidelines this summer to give carmakers more freedom to develop self-driving auto technologies, the US Secretary of Transportation Elaine Chao has said.

"This kind of request about removing certain aspects of what goes in a auto that was for human interaction has been discussed for a long time", Chao said to reporters following her remarks.

She said another version of the guidelines will come out this summer and apply to trucking companies, transit, infrastructure and other modes of transportation. He adds several universities in Canada including Montreal and Waterloo are working on creating a digital world and comparing it to reality for self-driving vehicles. "We hear a lot about Smart Cities".

Elaine Chao, U.S Secretary of Transportation speaking at the Cobo centre for the North American International Auto Show.

For the United States to stay dominant in the automotive industry as it shifts to automation, government must remove barriers to innovation, said a USA presidential cabinet member at the launch of Detroit's auto show.

Chao noted three initiatives since fall to move that forward.

"General Motors filed a Safety Petition with the Department of Transportation for its fourth-generation self-driving Cruise AV, the first production-ready vehicle built from the start to operate safely on its own, with no driver, steering wheel, pedals or manual controls", GM announced last week. "It's called automate driving systems 2.0, a vision for safety", explained Chao.

But Chao said part of DOT's mission is to cultivate and encourage innovation by eliminating unnecessary obstacles.
