Emad Abdel Rahim Dahiyat

Abstract


This paper briefly addresses what follows when the responsibility of driving is completely shifted to the autonomous vehicle system and all of its components. It also examines the different theories of liabilityand their potential application in the context of autonomous vehicles. This paper, however, is not intended to provide the final answer to all questions in this regard, but to identify the main challenges, and provide perspectives on how to deal with such issue.


Keywords


Artificial Intelligence, Commercialization of autonomous vehicles, Liability, Negligence.
