Overview

Defining the legal guidelines, rules and regulations for autonomous vehicles

There are still no universal rules or regulations in which autonomous vehicles can operate, and the potential legal issues surrounding autonomous vehicles are undefined. This conference is to discuss and explore how to create a regulatory framework to enable further public testing of autonomous and driverless vehicles. It will also debate what regulatory and legal challenges must be addressed before autonomous vehicles can be purchased and used by consumers. Over the course of the two days, the conference will address a number of key unresolved issues such as:

  • Adapting current safety standards and regulations to allow further testing of autonomous vehicles on public roads
  • Assessing liability in accidents involving autonomous vehicles
  • Establishing an international agreement on rules and regulations for autonomous vehicles
  • Safely integrating autonomous vehicles with other road users
  • Code of ethics for autonomous vehicles in the event of an unavoidable accident
  • Authorising police and law enforcement agencies to intercept and remotely stop self-driving vehicles
  • Allocating civil and criminal liability in the event of a cyberattack, vehicle hacking or deliberate interference with an automated vehicle
