The following statement is attributed to Gary Shapiro, president and CEO, Consumer Technology Association (CTA), on U.S. Department of Transportation Secretary Elaine L. Chao’s announcement of AV 4.0 at CES 2020:
“CES is the showplace for vehicle tech innovation, and we’re thrilled Secretary Chao announced AV 4.0 on our keynote stage. Self-driving technology is the future of mobility—making our roads safer and improving mobility for seniors and the disabled.
“Our industry must continue to work with government to ensure the success and adoption of self-driving vehicles. The partnership between the White House and U.S. Department of Transportation is proof government is prioritizing the adoption of self-driving technology. We look forward to our continued work together on policies that enable this technology to thrive.”
AV 4.0, a set of guiding policy principles for self-driving technology, is a first-ever partnership between the Department of Transportation and the White House.
