A Short Primer on Autonomous and Connected Vehicle Regulation

Overview


The regulatory framework for autonomous and connected vehicles is developing rapidly. In addition to laws of general application that extend to autonomous and connected vehicles as a result of the data—especially personally identifiable data—that these vehicles collect and process in large quantities, the framework increasingly includes laws, regulations and guidance focused specifically on vehicle autonomy.

This Special Report examines the emerging regulatory framework for autonomous and connected vehicles in the US and in certain key jurisdictions around the world, with particular emphasis on regulations pertaining to privacy and cybersecurity.
