A Legal Perspective on Three Misconceptions in Vehicle Automation

A Legal Perspective on Three Misconceptions in Vehicle Automation

"In this chapter I address three commonly misunderstood aspects of vehicle automation: capability, deployment, and connectivity. For each, I identify a myth pervading public discussion, provide a contradictory view common among experts, explain why that expert view is itself incomplete, and finally discuss the legal implications of this nuance. Although there are many more aspects that merit clarification, these three are linked because they suggest a shift in transportation from a product model to a service model, a point with which I conclude."

Key findings

Considering the amount of time it takes from production to use, automative technology will take longer to run our streets freely.

Automation technology may not cover real-time communications between vehicles.

"Automation will accelerate the shift in transportation from products to services."
