Today, the Eno Center for Transportation released Beyond Speculation: Automated Vehicles and Public Policy. The report provides a much-needed set of recommendations that address the myriad policy issues that face automated vehicles.
Automated vehicle (AV) technology will completely change how we travel, ship goods, and on a larger scale, how we think about mobility.
