This virtual panel session will examine the connection between the transition from conventional driving to autonomous driving behavioral changes and ethical issues. The panelists will delve into the implications for the development of automated vehicles, including the need for clear ethical guidelines and the role of drivers and passengers in these systems. The panel will also discuss the behavioral changes that are likely to accompany the widespread deployment of automated vehicles, including changes in road usage, vehicle ownership patterns, and transportation habits.
In this third PAVE Europe Panel, we will talk to experts from the private, academic and public sector about the ethical implications of these changes, including questions of transportation equity and the distribution of benefits and costs. Panelists will also discuss the role of regulators and policymakers in ensuring that the transition to automated driving is guided by ethical principles that prioritize public safety, privacy, and other important considerations.
