National Dialogue on Highway Automation – Launch Workshop - Thursday, June 7 at 8:00am

Automated vehicles have the potential to significantly transform the nation’s roadways. They offer potential benefits in safety but also introduce uncertainty for the agencies responsible for the planning, design, construction, operation, and maintenance of the roadway infrastructure. The Federal Highway Administration (FHWA) is initiating a national conversation with partners and stakeholders to better understand the implications of highway automation, to facilitate innovation, and to enable broader collaboration in this area. This partial-day event kicks off the National Dialogue on Highway Automation. The Dialogue will include a series of meetings held across the country to facilitate information sharing, identify key issues and prepare the broader transportation community to safely and efficiently integrate automated vehicles into the road network. Input received during the National Dialogue will help inform national research, policy, programs and will aid in the development of a national transportation community for automation.
