Principles for automated vehicles

Transportation Secretary Elaine Chao outlined the administration's first set of governmentwide automated vehicle (AV) principles to guide agencies in coordinating research, integrating the technology and avoiding burdensome regulations. Chao unveiled the 10 principles Wednesday at the Consumer Electronics Show 2020 in Las Vegas, highlighting how federal agencies can coordinate efforts, promote efficient markets and protect users. The new framework "unifies AV efforts across 38 different federal agencies and departments and independent agencies and commissions and executive offices of the president. You get the drift,” Chao said. “This document and set of guidelines recognizes the value of private-sector leadership in AV research, development and integration. This kind of innovation requires appropriate government oversight to ensure safety, open markets, strategic allocation of public resources, and of course protection of the public interest.” Dave Nyczepir has more.

Federal prisons have a cellphone problem. Though they've developed methods for stopping contraband cellphones from getting in, they now need help catching the wireless devices that make it past the screening process.
