Federal Highway Administration National Dialogue on Highway Automation: June 26-27, 2018 Policy and Planning Workshop Summary

The Federal Highway Administration (FHWA) initiated the National Dialogue on Highway Automation (National Dialogue) workshop series. The National Dialogue was a series of meetings held across the country to facilitate information-sharing and to engage the transportation community in a conversation focused on how to safely and efficiently integrate automated vehicles into the road network. This document summarizes the key themes discussed among participants from the June 2018 National Dialogue workshop held in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. The workshop was divided into four different sessions designed to gather input from stakeholders: Breakout Session 1: Small group discussions focused on identifying issues and challenges for policy and planning; Breakout Session 2: Small group discussions focused on opportunities, practices, and strategies to address policy and planning for automation; Collaboration Corner: Informal interactive session where participants provided input at multiple stations, each focused on a distinct topic; and Breakout Session 3: Group discussion focused on developing an action plan for the transportation community on automation.
