The Automated Vehicles Working Group was established in October 2016 by Executive Order No. 572 (PDF). The Working Group is chaired by the Secretary of Transportation. The full list of members is as follows:
The AV Working Group will continue to encourage the development of autonomous vehicles and their component parts in Massachusetts, and to that end shall work with companies in the sector to support innovation and development and consider proposing changes to statutes or regulations that would facilitate the widespread deployment of highly automated vehicles in Massachusetts while ensuring the safety of the public.
MassDOT, with input from the AV Working Group and other technical experts as deemed appropriate, will issue guidance to allow for the safe testing of such technologies on designated state highways and on other public roadways in municipalities that desire to permit such testing. The guidance shall complement the process for Testing Highly Automated Vehicles.
