Lidar Coalition Supports Contextualization in NHTSA Data Release on Safety Performance of Advanced Vehicle Technologies

The Lidar Coalition applauds NHTSA’s efforts to contextualize and separate data released on incident reporting for automated driving systems (ADS) and advanced driver assistance systems (ADAS). The data confirms that autonomous vehicles (AVs), the vast majority of which use lidar technology and include sensor redundancy, reduce the potential for severe injuries and fatalities on U.S. roadways. The Coalition looks forward to engaging further with NHTSA to make our roadways safer for all road users.
