The European Commission have recently published a draft Regulation proposing average CO2 emissions targets to be applied to light duty vehicles for the period beyond 2020. This new Regulation would repeal and replace the current EU Regulations on average CO2 emissions targets applicable to both passenger cars and light commercial vehicles with effect from 1st January 2020 and proposes the introduction of CO2 emissions targets that are reduced by 15% from 2025 and by 30% from 2030.

The U.S. Department of Transportation (DOT) and the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) are continuing their quest to support the introduction of automation technologies that hold the promise of fulfilling the NHTSA's mission of reducing the number of injuries and fatalities on our roads. After issuing Federal Automated Vehicles Policy (FAVP) in September 2016 and welcoming comments and feedback, they used that feedback to generate Automated Driving Systems 2.0 - A Vision for Safety in September 2017. They are again receiving written comments and have scheduled a public meeting for November 6th to directly receive feedback for further refinement of the guidance document for manufacturers and state governments.
