From the Executive Summary: "'The Automated Vehicles Comprehensive Plan (Comprehensive Plan)' advances the United States Department of Transportation's (U.S. DOT) work to prioritize safety while preparing for the future of transportation. Building upon the principles stated in 'Ensuring American Leadership in Automated Vehicle Technologies: Automated Vehicles 4.0 (AV 4.0)', the plan defines three goals to achieve this vision for Automated Driving Systems (ADS): 1. Promote Collaboration and Transparency - U.S. DOT will promote access to clear and reliable information to its partners and stakeholders, including the public, regarding the capabilities and limitations of ADS. 2. Modernize the Regulatory Environment - U.S. DOT will modernize regulations to remove unintended and unnecessary barriers to innovative vehicle designs, features, and operational models, and will develop safety-focused frameworks and tools to assess the safe performance of ADS technologies. 3. Prepare the Transportation System - U.S. DOT will conduct, in partnership with stakeholders, the foundational research and demonstration activities needed to safely evaluate and integrate ADS, while working to improve the safety, efficiency, and accessibility of the transportation system. Each goal includes a discussion of key objectives, as well as associated illustrative actions the Department is undertaking to address priorities while preparing for the future."
