NHTSA’s proposed safety regulations will impact autonomous vehicle market.

Forbes (1/4, Banker, 15.17M) reports that NHTSA’s proposed safety regulations, which would use vehicle-to-vehicle radio communications to “automatically send vehicle sensor other vehicles to alert drivers to potential crash situations,” could hasten the rate at which autonomous vehicles “become viable...because the chief impediment to the viability of autonomous vehicles are fears that they are not safe enough.” However, the “proposed rule makings” of federal agencies “progress incrementally,” so the “full benefits” of V2V technology “won’t be present until all vehicles are subject to the same regulations.”
