The National Highway Transportation Safety Administration (NHTSA) recently released a Final Rule on Occupant Protection for Vehicles with Automated Driving Systems. In short, this Final Rule amends the occupant protection Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standards (FMVSSs) to account for future vehicles that do not have the traditional manual controls associated with a human driver because they are equipped with Automated Driving Systems (ADS). The Final Rule is effective as of September 26, 2022. The lengthy Final Rule can be found here: 2022-05426.pdf (govinfo.gov). A more detailed summary of this Final Rule will be forthcoming.
