ABSTRACT 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… 

Towards Autonomous Vehicles in Smart Cities: Risks and Risk Governance

Some of the major risks associated with AV adoption that need to be addressed to reap the technology’s full benefits are explored and some of the governance strategies adopted to address these risks are discussed.

Autonomous Driving Systems: An Overview of Challenges in Safety, Reliability and Privacy

There are still many open problems in these areas and governments have not yet offered a solution to address them and more research needs to be done to address the existing safety and security challenges.

As this contribution argues, the focus of the current legislative measures aim to prevent unauthorised access to the vehicle’s systems, but fail to identify the steps necessary to limit the damage that can be done if this first line of defence is breached and un Authorised access is gained.

Autonomous Vehicles: Data Protection and Ethical Considerations

This paper analyzes what are the new privacy and data protection challenges that emerge in AVs and investigates the ethical and liability concerns surrounding algorithmic decision-making, highlighting research gaps and the need to mitigate these issues by acting swiftly.

Preparing Society for Automated Vehicles: Perceptions of the Importance and Urgency of Emerging Issues of Governance, Regulations, and Wider Impacts

This study explores the overall picture of how people perceive the importance level and urgency level regarding issues associated with automated vehicles, by sorting out ten issues, developing a

Algorithmic Decision-Making in AVs: Understanding Ethical and Technical Concerns for Smart Cities

This article investigates the ethical and technical concerns surrounding algorithmic decision-making in AVs by exploring how driving decisions can perpetuate discrimination and create new safety risks for the public.



Privacy implications and liability issues of autonomous vehicles

Autonomous vehicles have the potential for a variety of societal benefits. Individual mobility can be expanded to parties including the physically challenged, the elderly and the young. However, this

Proactive privacy for a driverless age

An early assessment of an area of concern that is growing as rapidly as are autonomous vehicles, and proposes the principles of “Privacy-by-Design”, an industry trend pertaining to other arenas of privacy, be adapted and used for regulating privacy around autonomous vehicles.

Grabbing the Wheel Early: Moving Forward on Cybersecurity and Privacy Protections for Driverless Cars

Public and industry interest in driverless cars has grown immensely and allowed autonomous vehicles to gain mainstream traction, and new Privacy Laws, Regulations, and Guidance are needed to Address Concerns Specific to Driverless Cars.

Responsibility for Crashes of Autonomous Vehicles: An Ethical Analysis

The first question discussed is whether the tort liability for car manufacturers should be designed in a way that will help along the development and improvement of autonomous vehicles and whether it would be morally permissible to impose liability on the user based on a duty to pay attention to the road and traffic and to intervene when necessary to avoid accidents.

Killing by Autonomous Vehicles and the Legal Doctrine of Necessity

How should autonomous vehicles (aka self-driving cars) be programmed to behave in the event of an unavoidable accident in which the only choice open is one between causing different damages or losses

Autonomous vehicles: challenges, opportunities, and future implications for transportation policies

Abstract This study investigates the challenges and opportunities pertaining to transportation policies that may arise as a result of emerging autonomous vehicle (AV) technologies. AV technologies

Risk Assessment for Cooperative Automated Driving

This paper proposes a novel application-based threat enumeration and analysis approach that is able to address different AD applications across all levels of automation, and proposes a reference architecture for automated vehicles, describing the new attack surfaces and data flow.

Sit, Stay, Drive: The Future of Autonomous Car Liability

Driverless cars have made the jump from fantasy to the physical realm. Technology has evolved to the point where autonomous cars will be a common sight in the very near future. The benefits of
