Preparing for the Future of Transportation: Automated Vehicles 3.0
How are autonomous vehicles regulated in the United States? Is it the right approach? In the inaugural episode of DRIVERLESS, host Zach Adams speaks with product liability litigator Jonathan Feczko and business and transportation lawyer Tod Northman, both partners at Tucker Ellis, about “Preparing for the Future of Transportation: Automated Vehicle 3.0.” The Department of Transportation issued the latest guidance in early October 2018, and the trio dig into the document, establish the regulatory context for the guidance, and evaluate the ramifications of the DOT’s approach. Drawing from their differing legal backgrounds, Zach, Jon and Tod assess who won with the document, who lost, and what issues were not adequately addressed. They also discuss why the federal government has taken the approach it has, despite legitimate concerns raised by safety and privacy advocates.View More
