Driverless vehicles in fatal accidents: Who's to blame?

Economic insecurity

Join the general public, independent researchers, academics, regulators and professionals from the vehicle construction industry as we debate the legal and ethical future of driverless vehicles on Friday 8th November, 4.30pm-7.30pm at Senate House Library in London. This event is part of the Festival of Social Science 2019.

In a not so distant future, vehicles will capture and relay data from the environment, the driver and other vehicles on the road. This data driven interaction will create new legal and ethical issues, which will profoundly affect our laws and understanding of security. So how do we create a driverless car that works for all?

Dr. Kakia Chatsiou from the Institute for Social and Economic Research at the University of Essex will host this lively public discussion alongside Dr Themistoklis Tzimas from the University of Thessaloniki, Greece and industry experts. This debate will bring together independent researchers, academics, regulators, people from the vehicle construction industry and individuals interested in data confidentiality and privacy to discuss issues of liability and regulation and set the foundations for a blueprint for data flows for a driverless car that works for all.

This event is open to both members of the public and professional experts. Anyone interested in the practical and ethical implications of driverless car technology will find this event enlightening.
