Increasing Transparency of Automated Driving Tests
The U.S. Department of Transportation (DOT) recently launched an online tool now available to the public that is intended to increase testing transparency and improve the safety of automated driving systems, also known as self-driving cars. The new tool tracks data for on-road testing of automated driving systems within 17 cities in the United States. The tool expands the information that is publicly available about these types of vehicles, including their safety performance and location of on-road testing sites. The goal is to increase public understanding of the automated systems. The tool is available here.
