Arizona Govenor Signs Off on Automated Mobility Institute
October 12, 2018
Arizona is apparently taking the lead in autonomous driving. Governor Doug Ducey has signed an executive order creating the Institute for Automated Mobility. It’s a collaboration of private sector companies, public officials and university researchers. They’ll focus on the science, safety and policies surrounding automated vehicles in a special facility designed to address a variety of real world scenarios. The Arizona Commerce Authority will oversee the institute. Arizona has been one of several places around the country where self-driving cars are being tested on the road.
