AV testing needs clear NHTSA guidelines

The design, construction and performance of motor vehicles and related equipment must conform and be certified to Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standards, which are written and maintained by NHTSA. If NHTSA issues new guidelines, it could reduce uncertainty within the industry by providing a clear, centralized and cohesive path forward for compliance testing of driverless vehicles.

This is why NHTSA’s next moves are so critical.
