Issues and considerations

Currently, we have legislation which recognises that a ‘driver’ is in control of their car and laws which require, and enforce the driver to drive safely. The legislative and legal framework is going to need to be reviewed and updated to keep up with technology.

Driverless vehicles are likely to collect a lot of information about its consumers, but who owns this information and what are the rights of consumers to this information?

There are also concerns about cyber security and the threat of the vehicle being hacked and overridden remotely. Will there be provisions for manual override?

With these issues, there needs to be appropriate standards and regulations which need to be in place to protect the community and businesses.
