About the Round Table

Ethic & Legal Challenges of Automated Driving in Europe

Organized by VIRTUAL VEHICLE   

March 2nd, 2021

09:30 till 11:00 AM (CET)  

Remote Event via MS Teams

Once a vision from a distant future, new Level 3 Autonomous Vehicles have become a reality – yet only from a technical point of view. A legal and normative solution for self-driving Level 3 cars on pan-European scale is overdue. To understand the problem and shortcomings, VIRTUAL VEHICLE has invited experts from various areas to join a round-table discussion. We look forward to an AI-mobility debate between law, ethics, industry, product assessment and the insurance industry.
