Using systems modeling to identify impacts to FMCSRs from emerging ADS business cases

The project focuses on key causal relationships affecting technology providers, the motor carrier industry and consumers of motor carrier services (e.g., shippers), in the context of automation and competition in the freight industry. The project provides a framework to identify the potential changes to humans’ roles under different Level 4 and Level 5 automation scenarios and how current regulation may or may not apply. The end deliverables are a report on potential industry changes, and next steps for how the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA) can prepare, especially for requests for regulatory exemptions and changes.
