The Texas Department of Transportation is creating a Connected and Autonomous Vehicle (CAV) Task Force to become a central point for CAV advancement in Texas.
The task force is designed to be a one-stop resource for information and coordination on all ongoing CAV projects, investments and initiatives in Texas, the TxDOT said. In addition to documenting public and private entity efforts and facilitating partnerships, the CAV Task Force will host industry forums and report lessons learned to facilitate progress and encourage greater collaboration.
“Our goal is to further build on the momentum already established with the Texas Technology Task Force and the Texas Innovation Alliance, and work with interested parties on the latest and greatest in CAV projects and enhancements,” said TxDOT Executive Director James Bass. “We look forward to furthering these important efforts as connected and autonomous vehicles become reality.”
