Driverless Car Technology Moving Faster Than Expected

Posted on November 24, 2015


Federal transportation officials are rethinking their position on self-driving vehicles with an eye toward getting the emerging autonomous technology into the public's hands, according to a spokeswoman for the U.S. Department of Transportation.

In a written statement Monday, U.S. Department of Transportation spokeswoman Suzanne Emmerling said that with rapid development of the technology, federal policy is being updated.

"Breathtaking progress has been made," Emmerling wrote. She said Transportation Secretary Anthony Foxx ordered his department's National Highway Traffic Safety Administration update its 2013 policy "to reflect today's technology and his sense of urgency to bring innovation to our roads that will make them safer."
