The Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA) within the Department of Transportation will hold a public meeting to solicit information on issues relating to the design, development, testing, and integration of automated driving systems (ADS)-equipped commercial motor vehicles on the Nation's roadways. The listening session will provide interested parties with an opportunity to assist the Agency's future rulemaking efforts by sharing their views on the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Regulations as they relate to the development and safe integration of ADS. It will also allow FMCSA to share with stakeholders the Agency's ADS strategy and open a channel for two-way communication. This listening session will supplement the information gathered from FMCSA's previous requests for comment on issues related to automation by targeting stakeholders from whom they have not previously received comments, including academia, insurance groups, and technology providers and developers. Attendees are also encouraged to share any data or analysis on this topic with Agency representatives.

Members of the public may attend in person. More information is available at this Federal Register notice.
