Autonomous vehicles present a unique coalescence of many different areas of the law, from policies and regulations implemented at the federal and state levels to product liability and tort law, and the technology on which autonomous vehicles are based. Join WilmerHale Partners David Cavanaugh and Brent Gurney as they provide insights into the autonomous vehicle industry as they relate to recent incidents in which driverless cars have hit and killed pedestrians. Speakers will discuss:
- Insights on government reaction to these incidents, including potential new policies and regulations on the developing autonomous vehicle industry
- How technology innovation and intellectual property play a part in the development of the emerging liability issues of autonomous vehicles
- Products liability and tort law implications of incidents involving driverless cars
- How the industry may adapt in response to these incidents, including potential for developing new technologies
