FMCSA announces a public listening session on July 12, 2018, to solicit information on issues relating to the design, development, testing, and integration of automated driving systems (ADS) equipped commercial motor vehicles (CMVs) on our Nation’s roadways.  The listening session will provide interested parties an opportunity to share their views on the FMCSRs as they relate to the development and safe integration of ADS.  It will also allow FMCSA to share with stakeholders the ADS strategy and open a channel for two-way communication.  This listening session will supplement the information gathered from FMCSA’s previous requests for comment on issues related to automation.  The session will be conducted at the same location as the 2018 Automated Vehicles Symposium sponsored by the Association for Unmanned Vehicle Systems International and the Transportation Research Board.  During the session representatives from FMCSA and the Federal Highway Administration (FHWA) will solicit information on issues relating to the design, development, testing and integration of ADS-equipped commercial vehicles.  Attendees are also encouraged to share any data or analysis on this topic with FMCSA and FHWA representatives.


The meeting will be held Thursday, July 12, 2018, from 1:30 p.m. to 3:30 p.m., Pacific Daylight Time (PDT) as part of the 2018 Automated Vehicles Symposium at the Hilton San Francisco Union Square, 333 O’Farrell Street, San Francisco, California 94102.  Comments will be accepted from in-person participants as well as comments submitted via the Internet.  If all interested participants have had an opportunity to comment, the session may conclude early. Participation in the listening session is free.
