Autonomous Vehicles: A Perspective From the U.S. Department of Transportation

The Honorable Anthony Foxx (Secretary of U.S. Department of Transportation) takes the stage to share his thoughts on how we can implement and embrace the advanced, data-driven technology in our midst while also preserving space for growth and innovations that don’t currently exist.



  1. From commercial use of drones to automated vehicles (and more), the DoT has embraced the rapid innovation occurring in the transportation sector.
  2. With the alignment of interest between government and industry objectives, we have the potential to use data to further optimize our transportation networks.
  3. When assessing new technology that can enhance mobility and better our lives, it is the government’s responsibility to ensure that safety comes first.
