Assimilating Self-Driving Cars Into Our Society

Mar 12, 2017

3:30pm – 4:30pm CT

This presentation will discuss the difficult regulatory issues surrounding introducing self-driving cars onto our roadways. Many novel questions will be discussed, such as how to allocate liability for an autonomous vehicle, the self-driving cars’ impact on public transportation and infrastructure, and personal privacy concerns.

Speakers will offer a unique, insider's perspective on public perceptions regarding automated and connected vehicles, and current legislative activities within the U.S. Self-driving cars are already a very real part of our society, and will soon be a constant presence in everyday life.
