Automation continues to be a hot topic in the trucking industry, and soon truck drivers will have the opportunity to provide their two cents on the subject.
Later this month, the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration will host a public listening session to solicit information on issues relating to the design, development, testing and deployment of highly automated commercial vehicles.
The listening session will be from 9:30 a.m. to noon EDT on Monday, April 24, at the Hyatt Regency Atlanta in the Regency Ballroom. Interested parties will have the opportunity to share their views and any data or analysis on this topic with representatives of the agency.
Participation in the listening session is free. FMCSA will post specific information on how to participate via the internet at the FMCSA website in advance of the session.
More information about the listening session can be found here.
