American vehicle safety regulators are unveiling a voluntary national scheme to disclose data on autonomous vehicle testing.
At the moment the regulation varies state-by-state with California requiring publication of every accident, while other states do not.
Reuters reports that the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration is unveiling the Automated Vehicle Transparency and Engagement for Safe Testing, or AV TEST, Initiative, to provide “an online, public-facing platform for sharing automated driving system on-road testing activities.”
The report says that officials believe a range of companies and states will sign up including automakers Fiat Chrysler, Toyota, GM’s Cruise, Uber and Waymo along with states including California, Florida, Michigan, Ohio, Pennsylvania and Texas.
