Self-Driving Cars and the Policy Maze

Self-driving cars have the potential to save tens of thousands of lives each year and reduce traffic congestion. However, supporting public policy must thread the needles of safety, privacy, cybersecurity, and liability. At the same time, it must protect public safety and allow for innovation and regulatory certainty. This panel brings the players to the table - regulators, technologists, researchers and Congress - to identify the policy challenges and opportunities toward full integration of this technology in our nation’s transportation system. See these experts lay out the many sticking points, the areas of collaboration, and the potential for progress in the new Congress.
