Uber’s Pittsburgh-based Advanced Technologies Group (ATG) has joined the Automated Vehicle Safety Consortium (AVSC) to collaborate on the development of best safety practices for automated vehicles (AVs). AVSC member companies like SAE international, Ford, General Motors, Toyota, and now Uber, aim to responsibly evolve technology that would enable widespread AV deployment.

“The AVSC is committed to providing industry leadership and engendering public confidence in automated vehicle technologies by publishing safety-relevant best practices and accelerating open industry standards,” says Dr. Edward Straub, executive director of the Automated Vehicle Safety Consortium. “Uber ATG is committed to moving the industry forward with a spirit of collaboration and openness.
