Club news: Germany sets ethical standards for automated and connected vehicles


Publication date: 04 July 2017


The increased popularity of automated and connected cars has sparked debates on the legal implications of such vehicles in several European countries. In Germany, the Ethics Committee for Automated Driving of the German Federal Ministry of Transport and Digital Infrastructure (BMVI), has already developed ethical guidelines for automated and connected driving to provide clarification on how they should operate in the mobility sector. The report addresses topics such as car data ownership, standards for investigating accidents and car data management.

 

"Highly automated driving clearly involves more opportunities than risks both in terms of road safety and personal mobility. Whatever innovation the future will hold in store for us, self-determination with regard to, for instance, data security and data protection remains of utmost importance for citizens," said ADAC President Dr August Markl, who is also a member of the Committee.
