Briefing on the Worldwide Status of Automated Vehicle Policies


Regardless of the hype surrounding "self-driving cars", it is clear that automated driving systems (ADS) will fundamentally change the automotive industry. Moreover, despite widespread expectations that ADS hold the key to achieving substantial reductions in road crashes, injuries, and deaths, these systems also raise concerns among safety authorities. The validation of ADS requires long-duration testing and development to ensure correct behavior under massively variable road conditions. Conventional regulatory methods developed over the past half-century lack methods and tools to assess such performance, forcing safety authorities to look for new ways to ensure that ADS will be safe for public use.

Who should attend?

The briefing is aimed at employees from the development departments of vehicle manufacturers and suppliers working in the field of automated driving and vehicles equipped with automated driving systems. Given the risks of misuse, it is particularly important for all employees in product strategy and marketing departments.

Course Objectives

This seminar reviews current efforts to adapt regulatory systems to meet this challenge, including the vigorous debates over strategies and methods and the roles of regulators and manufacturers in ensuring the safety of automated vehicles.
