One week to go: Don’t miss the Autonomous Vehicle Safety Regulation World Congress


The world’s only conference dedicated exclusively to discussing the rules, regulations and legal issues of autonomous vehicles will open its doors in just over a week’s time. Taking place October 23-25, 2018, at The Suburban Collection Showplace, Novi, Michigan, USA, the Autonomous Vehicle Safety Regulation World Congress will feature 40 expert speakers.

Leading names set to share their key insights and experiences include Paul Hemmersbaugh, chief counsel and policy director for Transportation as a Service, General Motors; Catherine Curtis, director vehicle programs, American Association of Motor Vehicle Administrators; and Bernard Soriano, deputy director, California Department of Motor Vehicles.

Over the course of three 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; a code of ethics for autonomous vehicles in the event of an unavoidable accident; authorizing police and law enforcement agencies to intercept and remotely stop self-driving vehicles; and allocating civil and criminal liability in the event of a cyberattack, vehicle hacking or deliberate interference with an automated vehicle.
