This policy statement is the U.S. government’s first comprehensive plan to accelerate development of highly automated vehicles (HAVs).

Issued in September 2016, the document presents four related aspects of the objective: vehicle performance, state-level policy, new approaches for regulating the safety of HAVs and new tools and regulatory structures need to deploy such vehicles.

The policy statement describes numerous goals that carmakers should achieve and document as they develop automatic vehicles. It also spells out areas where new legislation, rules and procedures will be needed as HAVs take to American roads.
