The Partners for Automated Vehicle Education (PAVE) have announced the launch of its Public Sector Advisory Council, a group of public sector organizations that will assist with PAVE’s campaign to educate consumers about autonomous vehicles and their societal impacts.
The Public Sector Advisory Council – which includes 20 geographically-diverse organizations, including cities, states, law enforcement organizations and regional governments – will help PAVE broaden its education initiatives by sharing their perspective of the potential impact of AVs on public sector entities.
“Public sector institutions have a unique and critical perspective on AV deployment, as they are grappling with questions such as ‘How will police officers interact with AVs?’ and ‘How will AVs affect traffic and parking needs?’” said PAVE Executive Director Tara Andringa. “We’ve seen that public sector institutions are eager to learn more and ensure they’re ready for the arrival of AVs, and this advisory council will help us to build resources for public sector entities to meet those needs.”
