Autonomous Vehicles – Overcoming Legislation


Autonomous Vehicles are becoming a reality and this will be another technology which will change our lives, similar to the changes experienced due to mobile phones. Safety is a major concern for autonomous vehicles which is why legislation and governance is so important

Autonomous vehicles use an array of integrated technologies such as image and sound sensors and other hardware to detect objects in order to make sure that there are no collisions.


  • Legislation: Governance of autonomous vehicles includes understanding their legality, rules and regulations, safety standards and testing procedures etc. In     order to regulate these new technologies there must be adequate laws in place that can ensure the safe operation of such vehicles on roads.
  • The US has already started working on regulations for self-driving cars through various agencies such as NHTSA (National Highway Traffic Safety     Administration) or NHTSA (National Highway Traffic Safety Administration),     while other countries like UK have used their existing laws on driving     which do not specifically address issues related to automation in     automobiles but rather cover general matters relating to road traffic     management such as speeding fines etc.

The software is the decision maker of the autonomous vehicle, processing all data from these sensors and decides about how to navigate safely through traffic.

Embedded software is essential in autonomous vehicle technology as it enables the vehicle to make the intelligent decisions needed to ensure safety.

Embedded software, often referred to as the "brain" of the vehicle, is essential in autonomous vehicle technology as it enables the vehicle to make intelligent decisions. The embedded software allows a car to sense its environment and react intelligently based on what it perceives.

For example, if your car's embedded software detects that there is another car ahead of you that has suddenly slowed down, it will then act by slowing down itself to avoid a collision.

Whilst we appreciate the importance of legislation and red tape, this could be a big barrier in the path of this technology, though most countries are looking at revising existing laws or creating new laws with respect to autonomous vehicles.

As we have seen, one of the most fundamental aspects of autonomy is safety. For this reason, it is important that legislation be in place to ensure that all parties involved are protected from damage or harm during the use of autonomous vehicles.

However, many countries will also need to revise their current laws around liability and insurance when it comes to driverless cars. This can be a blocker to innovation and progress because companies may hesitate before jumping into developing self-driving vehicles if they don’t know how they will be held accountable for any accidents or injuries caused by them.

Vehicle and road safety is extremely important since we spend so much time on the roads and while accidents do happen, we need to take the best measures possible in order to reduce accidents or fatalities.

Vehicle and road welfare is extremely important since we spend so much time on the roads and while accidents do happen, we need to take the best measures possible to reduce accidents or fatalities.

Vehicle safety is a high priority for governments as they want to ensure that their citizens are safe when they are traveling in vehicles. In fact, various countries have already started working on laws related to automated driving that would help in increasing road safety.

One such country is Japan where there has been a new law passed by the government which will provide incentives for automakers who invest in developing self-driving cars or test-driving them on Japanese public roads.


The future of autonomous vehicles is bright, but there are still a few hurdles to overcome. The technology needs to be perfected so that it can function correctly in all circumstances, but also, we need governments to ensure that the roads are safe for everyone from pedestrians through cyclists to motorcyclists and drivers.
