CTA Develops Self-Driving Vehicle Terminology

April 28, 2017–The Consumer Technology Association today announced the development of self-driving vehicle terminology that it said is “designed to enable a common lexicon among the technology industry and better explain to consumers the terms and concepts of this rapidly innovating sector.” CTA’s recently-formed Self-Driving Vehicles Working Group developed and approved the terms.

“From developments in advanced driver-assist systems to new mobility models, we are together leading a revolution in the transportation sector,” said Jessica Nigro, manager-outreach and innovation policy at Daimler North America and chair of the working group. “A common lexicon will increase understanding amongst policymakers, consumers and other stakeholders and encourage sound policies to bring automated driving technology to market.”
