Car manufacturers working on the US market over autonomous vehicles have no easy task. Each state has its own rules regarding this technology, which significantly impedes its development. That’s why Toyota, General Motorsm and Lyft have called on the US government to create common standards for this kind of technology. Companies feel that such regulations will make it much easier for them to work, such as testing such vehicles and putting them into use for future use.
The US Department of Transportation is not passive in this regard, as it is reported last year that it is taking a lot of action in this industry but is not fully committed to technology. More decisive steps would be needed, which would take into account new ideas implemented by manufacturers.
Unfortunately fighting uniform standards can be difficult, as not all manufacturers are interested in it. Although Toyota and GM support Volvo, but other companies such as Tesla or Google Waymo do not provide support.
