The Insurance Institute for Highway Safety & Intelligent Car Coalition talk liability and the ‘Blame Game’ for automated vehicles

It will include discussion on liability and insurance in an exclusive session with the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety and the Intelligent Car Coalition.

As the industry is on the brink of deploying advanced safety technologies, questions surrounding liability and insurance have arisen to the forefront. The Advanced Automotive Safety USA 2014 Conference (July 8-9, Hotel Baronette Renaissance, Novi, MI) will host a cutting edge session that explores where blame may lie in the instance of system fault.  The session will examine how increasing levels of automated controls in-vehicle raise vital questions about who is to blame in the event of an incident. When the driver is no longer driving- can they truly cause an accident? Manufacturers, certification bodies and drivers all face the potential for blame should an incident occur. The session will examine the different ways this could be structured.
