By Doug Davis, senior vice president and general manager of the Automated Driving Group
Self-driving technology is advancing quickly, and Intel is playing a leading role. To get ready for our autonomous future, we need to prepare our roads, cities, towns, and, more importantly, tomorrow’s passengers. A policy framework that prioritizes safety, innovation and U.S. leadership will play a critical role. To this end, I applaud the leadership of Secretary of Transportation Elaine Chao for her focused work to revise the nation’s Automated Vehicle Guidelines for the safe testing and deployment of self-driving vehicles. I also commend the recent passage of the SELF DRIVE Act in the U.S. House of Representatives. Such focus on self-driving vehicle policy drives us closer to Intel’s vision for autonomous transportation – including zero accidents and mobility for all. I look forward to fully reviewing Secretary Chao’s revised Autonomous Vehicle Guidelines and working with her and the Department of Transportation to pave the way to our safer autonomous future.
