Although you may not be able to purchase a fully self-driving vehicle today, you can spot a fully self-driving vehicle in certain testing locations. On June 15, 2020 the NHTSA launched it’s Automated Vehicle Transparency and Engagement for Safe Testing Initiative

The AV Test Initiative serves as an important role in educating members of the public about vehicles equipped with automated technology! Uber along with Toyota and GM are currently testing vehicles equipped with automated technology to ensure future deployments of this technology are safe. 

You can catch one of UBER’s Volvo XC90 vehicles on the public streets of San Francisco, Ca and Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. Under the AV Test Initiative, testing activity data will be available to the public in efforts of providing transparency that will bring more awareness to how automated technology in vehicles are being tested. 

Today, it is no longer just about the art of keeping up with the trends, safety is a priority! Driving informed and safe is not expensive, it’s priceless! Cars in the future will need to be repaired less and UNDERSTOOD more!
