PAVE Partners for Automated Vehicle Education
To bring the conversation about automated vehicles (AVs) to the public so everyone can play a role in shaping our future. PAVE’s goal is purely educational—we don’t advocate for a particular technology or specific public policies. Our members believe that we can only achieve the potential benefits of driverless technology if the public and policymakers know the honest facts. PAVE wants to raise public awareness of both what is on the roads today and what is possible for the future.
PAVE IS A COALITION OF INDUSTRY, NONPROFITS AND ACADEMICS WITH ONE GOAL:
To inform the public about automated vehicles and their potential so everyone can fully participate in shaping the future of transportation.
