Autonomous Vehicles: Navigating the Road Ahead

Autonomous vehicle technology is being developed, tested and deployed at a rapid rate. While it is difficult to forecast exactly when driverless vehicles will become commonplace on America's roadways, intelligent transportation systems and connected vehicles are quickly becoming a reality. Manufacturers, suppliers, transportation companies, technology companies, legislators, and regulators are all preparing for how to navigate this new road. This Webinar will:

  • Address the evolving federal and state regulatory and legislative landscape affecting autonomous and connected vehicles, including NHTSA’s forthcoming guidelines on automated vehicles and possible alternative structures for regulation.

  • Discuss the complex and unique product liability issues presented by autonomous vehicles, including the implications of the first known death of a passenger of a “self-driving” vehicle.

  • Analyze the various privacy and cybersecurity issues implicated by autonomous vehicles and intelligent transportation systems.
