TxDOT to Form Connected and Automated Vehicle Task Force

The CAV Task Force will document public and private entity efforts and facilitate partnerships as well as host industry forums and report lessons learned to aid in progress and encourage collaboration.

The Texas Department of Transportation announced Jan. 22 plans to create a Connected and Autonomous Vehicle (CAV) Task Force to become a central point for CAV advancement in the state.

The task force is designed to be a resource for information and coordination on all ongoing CAV projects, investments, and initiatives in the state. The CAV Task Force will document public and private entity efforts and facilitate partnerships as well as host industry forums and report lessons learned to aid in progress and encourage 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," TxDOT Executive Director James Bass said. "We look forward to furthering these important efforts as connected and autonomous vehicles become reality."

TxDOT is interested in the development and progress of autonomous vehicles because of their potential to greatly reduce crashes and improve road safety over time. They also create opportunities to reimagine personal and commercial mobility with quality of life and economic benefits.

The task force will build on legislation passed by the state's 85th Legislature related to how connected and autonomous vehicles can operate in Texas.
