US government quietly kills autonomous vehicle committee

The Department of Transportation’s Advisory Committee on Automation in Transportation (ACAT) hasn’t been active since it was formed in 2017. And it won’t be active anytime in the future, because according to The Verge, the administration has quietly killed it without even telling its members. Under President Obama, the DOT enlisted several big-name players from the transportation industry to become part of the group. The list includes Captain “Sully” Sullenberger, Apple VP Lisa Jackson, Waymo CEO John Krafcik and Lyft co-founder John Zimmer.
