REALIZING OUR AUTONOMOUS FUTURE

This event has passed

10/11/2016 @ 12:00 pm - 1:30 pm

What’s the federal role in regulating autonomous vehicles? 

On Sept. 20, the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration released its much anticipated self-driving vehicle guidelines. Instant reaction to the guidelines was generally favorable, but further reflection is beginning to reveal a more complicated picture.

As Congress, the states, and industry grapple with the the guidance, they will need to consider important questions. These include: what, if any, new authority will Congress need to consider to effectively oversee the development and deployment of self-driving vehicles? Has the correct balance between the state and federal spheres of authority been struck in the guidelines? Do self-driving vehicles require heightened regulatory scrutiny?

Join us for lunch and a lively discussion of self-driving cars, with an expert panel that includes:

 

Ian Adams

Senior Fellow, R Street Institute (Moderator)

 

David Strickland

Counsel, Self-Driving Coalition for Safer Streets; Former NHTSA Administrator
