"Advanced Vehicle Control Systems & Human Error"

October 26, 2021
Bloomberg Law

Michael Carey authored the Bloomberg Law article, “Advanced Vehicle Control Systems & Human Error.” The article discusses how increasing automated driving functions have created new legal challenges to manufacturers, as consumers claim vehicle malfunction or failure-to-equip, rather than human error, is a much more likely cause of crashes. Using examples, the article examines how consumer expectations—a barometer for determining liability—will largely be shaped by our collective acceptance and understanding of the technology.

Carey serves as co-leader of Dykema’s Electric and Autonomous Vehicles and Advanced Mobility team.
