Regulations for on-road testing of connected and automated vehicles: Assessing the potential for global safety harmonization

Regulations for on-road testing of connected and automated vehicles: Assessing the potential for global safety harmonization Although there is great media attention to connected and automated vehicles (CAVs) and strong public interest in the technology, it is still under development. Their deployment to the broader public will require new regulations and road traffic rules that are also under development, and there is not yet a globally harmonized approach. This paper reviews the main safety and liability issues for CAVs with a... [Lire la suite]

How’s the APAC preparing for the arrival of autonomous vehicles?   GALLUP recent polled Americans about self-driving cars recently and found that more than 50 percent felt they would be the norm within the next decade. A more global study suggests that one in four vehicles will be fully autonomous (level 5) before 2030. However, as much of the progress is being made at research facilities, the real question is this: How are the majority of vehicle manufacturers and regulators preparing for the arrival of this technology? ...

Global Survey of Autonomous Vehicle Regulations

Global Survey of Autonomous Vehicle Regulations Most people today realize it is only a matter of time before self-driving vehicles revolutionize our transportation and delivery systems. While breakthroughs in self-driving technologies have thus far come from a cluster of star companies such as Google Waymo, Ford, GM, and Tesla, the important role of lawmakers and local authorities in the research and development process cannot be overlooked. Without government permits, testing self-driving cars on public roads is almost... [Lire la suite]
