At the Spring 2018 TMC Meeting, the TMC Board created a new S.18 Study Group on Automated Driving. I wasnt aware this was in the works but I think it is an important step forward for TMC.
I’ve been informed that the Future Truck Automated Driving and Platooning Task Force will be disbanded, with its activities being absorbed — to some degree — into the new S.18 Study Group. The leadership of S.18 is in an organizational phase and they’re very open to assistance and participation. I’m in touch with them to help in whatever way useful.
What this means is we are in limbo for now regarding the Information Reports. I want to make the most of the progress we’ve made so far, so I will produce another draft (under my own auspices) and make this available to you all.
I’ll keep you posted as things develop.
