Technology and the Law: Accelerating the Next Revolution in Roadway Safety

October 18, 2016

Session Nine
Tuesday, October 18, 2016
1:00 pm – 2:00pm EST

The United States Department of Transportation (“DOT”) has issued its much anticipated “Federal Automated Vehicles Policy”, a far-reaching approach to the development, certification and regulation of Highly Automated Vehicles (“HAV”). DOT has requested comments no later than November 22, 2016, on the Policy, which also intersects with major legislative initiatives by state governments to promote (or restrict) the deployment of HAV’s on their roads. A panel of Dykema’s Automated and Connected Vehicle Team will examine the DOT Policy along with the emerging state legislation and regulation and potential litigation issues such as implications for product liability. The Dykema legal team will also provide the latest news on the NHTSA rulemaking for “vehicle to vehicle communication”—cars that warn each other to help drivers avoid collisions.

Speakers: William J. Kohler, Senior Counsel, and Paul M. Laurenza, Member and Chairman of the Connected Vehicle Trade Association
Moderator: Nicholas J. Wittner
