DOT/NHTSA RIN: 2127-AM06 Publication ID: Fall 2020 
Title: +Occupant Protection for Automated Driving Systems 

This action proposes to amend crashworthiness regulations that may be necessary to facilitate the certification of motor vehicles equipped without driver controls. 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 ADS-equipped vehicles, particularly those without human controls. In response to comments received from the January notice, the agency initiated this NPRM to begin the rulemaking process. NHTSA will consider comments received from this notice, agency research, stakeholder engagement, and internal agency analysis to remove crashworthiness-related regulatory barriers.
