WASHINGTON — On Monday, October 30, the Property Casualty Insurers Association of America (PCI) will host a forum featuring industry leaders discussing the rapidly emerging future of autonomous vehicles and how the private sector, safety community, and government are preparing America to move forward.
The discussion will focus on the opportunities and the challenges associated with highly automated vehicles. Automated vehicles hold great promise for reducing the number of deaths and accidents on our nation’s roads, as well as providing increased mobility for disabled and aging populations. In order to realize those benefits, questions must be answered about safety regulation, security, and privacy protections, as well as vehicle data access and sharing.
