Preparing for the Future of Transportation: Automated Vehicles 3.0

This document advances the U.S. Department of Transportation's (U.S. DOT's) commitment to supporting the safe, reliable, efficient, and cost-effective integration of automation into the broader multimodal surface transportation system including passenger vehicles, commercial vehicles, on-road transit, and the roadways on which they operate. It builds upon—but does not replace—voluntary guidance provided in Automated Driving Systems 2.0: A Vision for Safety. It incorporates feedback from manufacturers and technology developers, infrastructure owners and operators, commercial motor carriers, the bus transit industry, and State and local governments. It includes six principles that guide U.S. DOT programs and policies on automation and five implementation strategies for how the Department translates these principles into action. Strategies include: stakeholder engagement, best practices, voluntary standards, targeted research, and regulatory modernization. The report also identifies opportunities for partnership and collaboration among the private sector, State and local agencies, and U.S. DOT on issues ranging from accessibility to workforce development to cybersecurity.
