ASA Talks Telematics on Capitol Hill
May 4, 2016—The Automotive Service Association (ASA) announced Tuesday that its mechanical leaders met with members of Congress last week to discuss telematics and new-vehicle technologies.
The ASA discussed with Congress members the effect of new technologies and telematics on the automotive service industry and the efforts of the automotive industry to work together.
Bob Kreeb, division chief for the Intelligent Technologies Research Division at the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), outlined the administration’s work on telematics, connected vehicles, and security and privacy implications.
“The federal government has repeatedly called for industry input as they address these new technologies,” ASA Chairman Donny Seyfer said. “To that end, ASA is proud to lead the collaborative effort to assure workable solutions for independent repairers. We firmly believe this kind of collaborative rule making is the most effective way to benefit all stakeholders.”
