NHTSA says in its notice that it is studying other changes to the safety standards, including adjustments that would allow all seats within a driverless vehicle to face each other, or to recline flat.
The adjusted standards would nix some rules related to rider safety for autonomous vehicles that carry goods like groceries, but no people.
So these new rules are only relating to low speed vehicles that don’t carry humans? Why is it called “rider safety” then?
