Tranport Topics – Executives from the commercial and passenger transportation industries will have an opportunity to recommend policy directives to federal officials during a forum the U.S. Department of Transportation will host March 1.

The listening session at the department’s headquarters is meant to gather perspectives from truck manufacturers, automakers, groups representing the logistics and labor sectors and commuters ahead of the release of the latest policy guidance on automated vehicles.

The event will consist of keynote addresses, an outline of the new guidance, panel discussions featuring experts and government officials and questions from the audience. The event’s objective is to “identify priority federal and nonfederal activities that can accelerate the safe rollout of [automated vehicles],” according to DOT.
