The DOT's comprehensive policy overview on self-driving cars, released Tuesday, presents safety guidelines for self-driving auto manufacturers - from data recording to crashworthiness and cybersecurity - in addition to distinguishing what federal and state government responsibilities are and outlining the existing and possibly new regulatory tools necessary to monitor self-driving cars. For example Obama says, "Too many people die on our roads - 35,200 a year ago alone - with 94 percent of those the result of human error or choice".
Obama makes it clear that he sees automated driving as a positive development, writing that the technology has the "potential to transform the way we live".
President Barack Obama preempted Tuesday's release of the federal government's guidelines for self-driving cars with a hopeful op-ed in the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette, wherein he attempted to strike a balance between innovation and safety.
In June, a driver utilizing Tesla's Autopilot system, a feature that allows the auto to be semi-autonomous, was involved in a fatal crash - the first of its kind involving an autonomous vehicle. "Americans deserve to know they'll be safe today even as we develop and deploy the technologies of tomorrow". Self-driving vehicles could also help senior citizens and people with disabilities who can't drive on their own.
The new guidelines will include a 15-point safety check that governs how self-driving vehicles respond to crashes and what protections they must offer passengers.
The president also wrote that government rules are necessary, and that if self-driving vehicles are not safe, the federal government will remove them from the roads. Government sometimes gets it wrong when it comes to rapidly changing technologies.
