NHTSA asks for comments on GM, Nuro autonomous applications

Federal regulators are seeking public comments on proposals for autonomous vehicles from General Motors and Nuro. Automakers must submit requests for waivers from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) to test vehicles that don’t meet traditional safety standards.

“The Department is actively seeking public comment on proposed exemptions to federal standards and how the public can be protected as new transportation technologies emerge,” U.S. Secretary of Transportation Elaine L. Chao says.

The full text of each company’s proposal is available on NHTSA’s website. https://www.nhtsa.gov
