Governing autonomous vehicles: emerging responses for safety, liability, privacy, cybersecurity, and industry risks

Araz Taeihagh and Hazel Si Min Lim, Lee Kuan Yew School of Public Policy, NUS, July 11, 2018

The benefits of autonomous vehicles (AVs) are widely acknowledged, but there are concerns about the extent of these benefits and AV risks and unintended consequences. In this article, we first examine AVs and different categories of the technological risks associated with them. We then explore strategies that can be adopted to address these risks, and explore emerging responses by governments for addressing AV risks. Our analyses reveal that, thus far, governments have in most instances avoided stringent measures in order to promote AV developments and the majority of responses are non-binding and focus on creating councils or working groups to better explore AV implications.
