ACE Program: AV Truck Maintenance, Testing, and Storage Support

Project Goal:

This effort supports the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration's (FMCSA’s) Automated Commercial Motor Vehicle (CMV) Evaluation (ACE) Program. This support contract allows FMCSA to: 1) store and properly maintain its three Class 8 test tractors at the Aberdeen Test Center (ATC) in Maryland; 2) safely execute test cases on the test track at ATC; and 3) collect and access test data.

Summary:

The U.S. Army's ATC will store, maintain, and run safety-based automated CMV evaluations on FMCSA's three Class 8 tractor semi-trailers. FMCSA is aligning its automated CMV testing efforts with the Federal Highway Administration, which is currently storing and testing other vehicles equipped with automated driving systems (ADS) at the ATC.
