DOT/NHTSA RIN: 2127-AM19 Publication ID: Fall 2020 
Title: +Specialized Motor Vehicles With Automated Driving Systems 

This notice seeks comment on establishing regulatory requirements specific to classes of specialized motor vehicles equipped with automated driving systems (ADS). 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 ANPRM to begin the rulemaking process. NHTSA will consider comments received from this notice, agency research, stakeholder engagement, and internal agency analysis to identify appropriate requirements that maintain the agency's continued focus on safety while enabling innovative vehicle designs.
