About this event

This presentation looks at current and emerging laws both national and international that governs autonomous driving. Autonomous vehicles already exist and the laws are trying to catch up, echoing the position when the first commercial car took to the road 130 years ago. However, while road safety has always been the primary feature of vehicle regulation, autonomous vehicles present a new wave of legal complexity, including addressing concerns about legal and ethical responsibility and the consequences of a brave new world of vehicle-generated big data.
