ITE Comments on FHWA Request for Information on Automated Driving Systems
ITE provided comments on the Federal Highway Administration's (FHWA) "Automated
Driving Systems" Request for Information
(Docket Number FHWA-2017-0049) in a
letter from International President Michael
P. Sanderson to the FHWA's Acting Administrator Brandye L. Hendrickson. The complete
letter is available here: http://bit.ly/2Hz4cRq.
Exerpts from the letter follow:
ITE agrees with the U.S. Department of
Transportation (USDOT) that the promise of
safer vehicle systems is closer to becoming
a reality, and we support the integration of
automated driving systems (ADS) technology
to ensure its safe testing and deployment, as

well as encouraging the development of systems that guard against cyber-attacks and
protect consumer privacy.
Specific responses to each of your 10 questions
will follow. However, as a general comment
we would like to point out what we believe is
a critical issue in the previous set of guidelines
released by NHTSA: the lack of specificity in
terms of vehicles with ADSs coordinating and
connecting with the infrastructure - notably
through connected vehicle (CV) technology
that has been researched, pilot tested, and
proposed as a possible mandate through
separate NHTSA action. Dividing the discussion between CV and ADS isn't productive,

and in the opinion of many experts we can't
fully achieve Level 4 or 5 automation without
some form of vehicle-to-infrastructure (V2I)
connectivity. Future versions of this guidance
should include an emphasis on ADS coordination through V2I and vehicle-to-vehicle
(V2V) connectivity.
ITE has an active CV/Automated Vehicle (AV)
Steering Committee that brings the voice of
many transportation engineering disciplines
to the table. ITE looks forward to continuing to work with FHWA and the rest of the
USDOT modal administrations in the implementation of both automated vehicles as
well as connected vehicles. itej

Speed Management ePrimer
for Rural Transition Zones
and Town Centers

Access Online

This new Federal Highway Administration (FHWA)
resource is a website developed by ITE through an
FHWA contract. The e-Primer focuses specifically
on addressing speeding-related safety issues in
rural communities, complementing the FHWA
Traffic Calming ePrimer. It includes guidance on the
comprehensive rural speed management process, from
identifying potential hot spots, to implementing and
evaluating speeding countermeasures. The ePrimer
places particular emphasis on low-cost treatments
suitable for deployment in a rural environment, and
includes several case studies from rural communities
across the United States to illustrate the safety
improvement process.
