The Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration has announced a public listening session to solicit information on issues related to the design, development, testing and integration of commercial vehicles with automated driving systems.

The public session will take place on June 19 and is meant to provide interested parties with an opportunity to work with the FMCSA on its future rulemaking efforts by sharing views on regulating the development and safe integration of automated driving systems, which it's calling ADS.

The forum will offer insight into the FMCSA’s ADS strategy and open a channel for two-way communication between the agency and industry stakeholders.

The listening session will supplement the information gathered from FMCSA's previous requests for comment on issues related to automation by targeting stakeholders that have not previously commented, including academia, insurance groups, and technology providers and developers.

Attendees are also encouraged to share any data or analysis on this topic.

The meeting will be held from 1 p.m. to 3 p.m. Eastern Daylight Time at the University of Michigan's Mcity in Ann Arbor, Michigan, Research Auditorium.
