One year after announcing the launch of the Non-Traditional and Emerging Transportation Technology (NETT) Council, U.S. Transportation Secretary Elaine L. Chao on July 23, 2020 released ‘Pathways to the Future of Transportation’, a policy document that is intended to serve as a roadmap for innovators of new cross modal technologies to engage with the Department.   Chao said “Pathways to the Future of Transportation guidance on new, cross-modal technologies will help address legitimate public concerns about safety, security and privacy without hampering innovation.”   (July 23, 2020, www.dot.gov)
