DOT/NHTSA RIN: 2127-AM18 Publication ID: Fall 2019 
Title:+Passenger-Less Delivery Vehicles Equipped With Automated Driving Systems 

This action seeks comments on amending regulations that may be necessary to facilitate the certification of motor vehicles without a passenger compartment. The agency published a Federal Register notice on January 18, 2018 requesting comment on existing regulatory barriers that may block the introduction and certification of Automated Driving System (ADS)-equipped vehicles, particularly those without human controls. In response to comments received from the January notice, the agency initiated this ANPRM to begin the rulemaking process. NHTSA, while continuing its focus on safety, will consider comments received from this notice, agency research, stakeholder engagement, and internal agency analysis for identifying regulatory barriers.
