Driverless Cars

image011I have recently become interested in the advent of automated vehicle technologies and the many legal and regulatory issues driverless cars will raise.  Supported by a grant from the Michigan Mobility Transformation Center, my colleagues Kyle Logue, Bryce Pilz and I recently hosted a conference on driverless cars and have a draft paper on the legal and regulatory framework, which can be downloaded from SSRN here.

This video produced by Michigan Law’s terrific communications team (thanks Alex Lee!) shows Kyle, Bryce, and me driving around town and speculating about the future of driverless cars.

Stay tuned for further exciting developments in this space.
