  • Automated and Autonomous Driving: Regulation under uncertainty | International Transport Forum | Corporate Partnership Board
    for car occupants With the uptake of on road autonomous driving being years rather than decades away authorities will have to adapt existing rules and create new ones in order to ensure the full compatibility of these vehicles with the public s expectations regarding safety legal responsibility and privacy This project looks at what issues will have to be considered at a strategic level by authorities as autonomous vehicles arrive on our roads How We undertook this study on the basis of meetings and discussions amongst project partners desktop research and invited the contribution of an external expert Bryant Walker Smith of the University of the South Carolina School of Law and the Center for Internet and Society at Stanford Law School What we found Autonomous technologies are maturing and some autonomous driving is here already Self driving cars seem a near term possibility but their range of capabilities is unclear Road safety is expected to improve with vehicle automation but this effect remains untested at a large scale and may not be immediate or linear There are many possible technological configurations for autonomous driving There are two incremental paths towards full automation Use and business cases are closely linked
