The Federal Trade Commission has extended the deadline until May 1 for the public to submit comments on topics that should be examined as part of a June 28, 2017 workshop on the consumer privacy and security issues posed by automated and connected motor vehicles.

Last month, the FTC and the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), which is co-hosting the workshop, called on the public to submit comments on the privacy and security issues associated with connected cars. The comment deadline, originally set for April 20, has been extended to May 1 at the request of stakeholders.

A list of suggested questions and information about submitting comments can be found on the workshop’s detailed public notice. The workshop will be held on June 28 at the FTC’s Constitution Center, 400 7th St., SW, Washington, DC. It will be webcast live on the FTC’s website. Registration information, an agenda, directions to the FTC’s Constitution Center building, and a list of speakers will be available on the event webpage.
