AAMVA Guidlines for Testing and Deployment of Autmoated Vehicles
This session will provide a detailed overview of the AAMVA publication titled Safe Testing and Deployment of Vehicles Equipped with Automated Driving Systems Edition 3. This guidance document that will be reviewed provides assistance and recommendations for the regulation of testing, piloting, and deployment of automated vehicles.
