Paul Laurenza Presents at Intelligent Transportation Society of America’s 2014 World Congress on Intelligent Transport Systems

September 8, 2014

Paul M. Laurenza, a member of Dykema’s Government Policy Practice Group and Office Managing Member of the firm’s Washington, D.C. office, was a featured panelist at the Intelligent Transportation Society of America’s (ITS America) 2014 World Congress on Intelligent Transport Systems, held in Detroit from Sept. 7-11 in partnership with ERTICO and ITS Asia-Pacific. 

The panel, titled “Liability Issues for the Connected and Automated Vehicle,” took place on Sept. 7 from 1 – 2:30 p.m., and addressed concerns for both the private and public sector surrounding product and infrastructure-related liability in the deployment of connected and autonomous vehicles. The discussion included analysis of how current and potential government regulation may affect liability concerns for the connected and autonomous vehicle and supporting infrastructure so that both regulatory and product liability factors may be viewed in an integrated risk assessment context.

The World Congress, which comes to North America only once every three years, is expected to draw nearly 10,000 delegates from more than 65 countries, including legislators, ministers of transportation, transportation officials, international standards experts, engineers, manufacturers, and other stakeholders to share the latest intelligent transportation systems applications from around the globe.
