Talking Freight Webinar for July 19, 2017: Regulatory, Policy, and Planning Issues and Needs for Truck Automation
The development and deployment of automated trucks is quickly becoming one of the most closely examined developments in the trucking industry, both from the carriers' perspective and the government's perspective. It is unclear how long it will take for driving technology assisted trucks to become commonplace on U.S. highways, but it appears likely these trucks will become common at some point in the future. However, while there is an increasing amount of research being done on automated trucks and strong interest from many stakeholders in learning about these technologies, there has been relatively little research conducted on the regulations, policies, and planning issues that will be needed to guide the development of driving technology assisted trucks. Such research will be critical in ensuring the positives of deploying such trucks are maximized and the negatives are minimized. This webinar will examine various perspectives on the policies, regulations, and planning considerations governments can implement to appropriately manage truck carriers' gradual deployment of automated trucks.
