Roundtable on Data for Automated Vehicle Safety: Summary Report

On Thursday, December 7, 2017, the United States Department of Transportation (USDOT) hosted the Roundtable on Data for Automated Vehicle Safety. The roundtable demonstrated multimodal alignment around the “One DOT” approach to federal automated vehicle policy and marked the beginning of a new phase of dialogue with public and private sector stakeholders to accelerate the safe deployment of automated vehicles. The roundtable brought together over 60 participants from federal, state, and local government; businesses; nonprofit organizations; universities; and research centers to: (1) Gather feedback on the USDOT’s draft Guiding Principles on Voluntary Data Exchanges to Accelerate Safe Deployment of Automated Vehicles and draft Framework for Voluntary Data Exchanges to Accelerate Safe Deployment of Automated Vehicles; and (2) Identify near-term, critical-path voluntary data exchange use cases to accelerate the safe rollout of automated vehicles. Over the course of the day’s discussions, the following high-priority use cases for data exchange were identified: Monitoring Planned and Unplanned Work Zones; Providing Real-Time Road Conditions; Diversifying Automated Vehicle Testing Scenarios; Improving Cybersecurity for Automated Vehicles; Improving Roadway Inventories; Developing Automated Vehicle Inventories; and Assessing Automated Vehicle Safety Features and Performance. For each high-priority area, roundtable participants identified specific goals, data types and datasets, key stakeholders, challenges and proposed solutions, as well as relevant models for consideration in developing these near-term, critical-path voluntary data exchanges. Roundtable participants also outlined proposed federal roles in enabling these voluntary data exchanges over the next 6 to 12 months. This report summarizes the discussions on these issues raised by the various participants.
