Rapidly advancing technology precipitated by Moore’s Law coupled with Google’s mission to improve people’s lives by transforming mobility have us tracking toward a similarly empowering experience we have with Smart Phones only with wheels. Most auto manufactures have test vehicles on the road. US DOT is watching and sees enormous opportunity to save lives. The potential to reduce congestion and consequential emissions has us listening. In fact, the federal transportation budget includes investment dollars for infrastructure to support this emerging development. Further, the feds have recently issued three guidance policy documents to support and encourage these data driven machines. What will it all mean for Kentucky?
Our focus will be to share our assessment of legislation, statute, regulation, and policy (through KTC research); look at an AASHTO led review of recently published Federal guidance policy; and share what we have learned from other states and research groups across the country.
