ITS America Comments to Highways and Transit Subcommittee Roundtable – The Impact of Autonomous Vehicle Technology on the Nation’s Surface Transportation Systems

The Advanced Transportation and Congestion Management Technologies Deployment program in the Fixing America’s Surface Transportation Act (“FAST ACT”) authorizes grants to eligible entities to develop model deployment sites for large scale installation and operation of advanced transportation technologies such as autonomous vehicles and vehicle-to-infrastructure communications.”
