NHTSA Announces NPRM for ADAS

The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) announced a notice of proposed rule making (NPRM) to “clarify the ambiguities in applying current crashworthiness standards to Automated Driving Systems (ADS) equipped vehicles without traditional manual controls, while maintaining the regulatory text’s application to more traditional vehicles and vehicles equipped with ADS that may have alternate modes.”

The proposal is one of a series of actions NHTSA is considering to address the short and long-term challenges of testing new vehicle technology while verifying compliance with the Federal motor vehicle safety standards for vehicles with ADS.
