  • In order to present a united front to regulatory agencies like the Department of Transportation and the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, companies heavily invested in autonomous technology have created a new lobbying group called the Self-Driving Coalition for Safer Streets. The companies involved in forming the group include Google Inc., Ford Motor Co, Volvo AB, Uber Technologies Inc., and Lyft Inc. Counsel and spokesperson for the group, David Strickland, stated that the group’s goal is to help develop “one clear set” of federal laws that will pave the way for the technology’s development and implementation.
