Complying With Evolving Automotive Safety Standards

A vehicle coming off the assembly line today is a marvel of technological innovation, though much of it remains unseen by consumers. That’s because a typical car can have as many as 100 million lines of software code and upwards of 100 electronic control units.

While advanced technologies enable our vehicles to do more today than we could have imagined a few decades ago, they can also cause more safety issues if not developed properly.

Increasingly, automotive technology developers are designing safety and security into their products, guided by a growing number of specific standards.

This has always been true

NHTSA and Motor Vehicle Safety – April 2021 | Foley & Lardner LLP

Over the past few years, the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), the primary regulator of motor vehicles and motor vehicle equipment and their manufacturers, has been balancing its work of keeping pace with technology innovations against its work on compliance enforcement. As the Biden administration begins to take shape, the priorities of the U.S. Department of Transportation and NHTSA will shift to reflect the regulatory philosophy and priorities of the new administration. This change in administrations offers some particularly interesting differences, as NHTSA spent the entirety of the Trump administration without an administrator. One focus of the Biden administration
