Reportedly, the plan is to prepare for the US Transportation Department's bigger initiatives.
The Trump administration plans to drop support for ten locations in the United States currently used as the nation's "proving grounds" for semi-autonomous vehicle testing, two officials familiar with the matter told Bloomberg.
Established on the last day that former President Barack Obama was in office, the U.S. Transportation Department designated the locations, ranging from California to Florida, as federally-recognized "automated vehicle proving grounds". These pilot sites were hand-picked to test automated vehicle technologies and share information to help foster change in the nation's mobility platforms. Ideally, each site would be able to use its experiences to promote the safe growth of a new industry through innovation.
The current locations established by the U.S. Department of Transportation are as follows:
Reportedly, the department is also preparing to release a new nationwide initiative which, by removing the exclusivity to these sites, would promote the growth of semi-autonomous vehicle testing platforms at an accelerated rate, opening up pilots to both corporations and state-level government. The initiative is also expected to roll out guidelines on semi-autonomous long-haul trucking, public transit, and highway infrastructure.
