AI News, Artificial Intelligence: A European Perspective

Automated Vehicles

We are reviewing the regulatory framework for the safe deployment of automated vehicles in the UK.

The Centre for Connected and Autonomous Vehicles (CCAV) has asked the Law Commission of England and Wales and the Scottish Law Commission to undertake a far-reaching review of the legal framework for automated vehicles, and their use as part of public transport networks and on-demand passenger services.

By automated vehicles we refer to vehicles that are capable of driving themselves without being controlled or monitored by an individual for at least part of a journey. We also consider issues arising at the boundary between self-driving vehicles and widely used driver assistance technologies such as cruise control.

In all, we received over 2600 pages of detailed and interesting discussion from a wide variety of consultees including individuals, transport research experts, car manufacturers and developers, safety and disability groups, insurers, the police, local government, lawyers and academics.

The central finding from our work so far relates to safety assurance: there was overwhelming support for a national safety assurance scheme for automated driving systems.

We cover accessibility for older and disabled people, how to control congestion on public roads and how regulation can help self-driving vehicles integrate with public transport.
