Communicators with Mark Rosekind
This was the first in a series of programs about changes in car technology and the role of government regulators in overseeing them.
Mark Rosekind talked about guidelines for self-driving cars issued the previous week by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA). Currently, individual states set separate sets of regulations for where and how self-driving cars can operate. The NHTSA issued federal guidelines included a 15-point safety assessment for car makers to use before selling driverless cars to the public. The NHTSA was in a 60-day comment period on the guidelines. Administrator Rosekind also reacted to a video clip of an interview with Carnegie Mellon University Professor Ragunathan Rajkumar.
