Automated Vehicle (AV) Grading Standards for State Highways

The Florida Department of Transportation (FDOT) must coordinate with related federal, regional, local, and industry partners to establish standards to grade the compatibility of the State Highway System with AVs. FDOT must consider the structural adequacy and safety of each road and the challenges they may present to AVs. The standards established by FDOT must be incorporated into transportation projects that involve the construction of new roads or maintenance of existing roads on the State Highway System.
