Group Seeks Central U.S. Path For Unmanned Vehicles

BISMARCK, Nd

A trade group wants to create a pathway for unmanned vehicles through the central U.S.

Marlo Anderson with the Central North American Trade Corridor Association says major railways and roads move east to west in the middle part of the country, and there's a lack of north-south avenues.

The association is starting an initiative to develop regulations for driverless vehicles, both on the ground and in the air. One roadblock is that the emerging technology is ahead of regulations.

Anderson says within five years he hopes to have a trial corridor, possibly from Bismarck to Minot or to Pierre, S.D.

Association Chairman Steve Pederson calls the idea "visionary." He says in ten years, the transportation industry will look a lot different than it does today.
