At the Intersection of Highly Automated & Autonomous Vehicles

At the Intersection of Highly Automated & Autonomous Vehicles


Automated vehicle technology continues to speed ahead, and we are getting closer to seeing Level 3 and Level 4 (on the SAE scale) vehicles on U.S. roads across the country. 

This program will examine potential bases for criminal liability associated with Level 3, 4 and 5 vehicles, including possible issues under the Fourth and Fifth Amendments to the US Constitution.  The panel will discuss the automobile exception to the Warrant Requirement, the Fifth Amendment Privilege against self-incrimination, and whether the application of these Constitutional principles may change as we move from traditional vehicles to automated and autonomous vehicles.  Our experts will also evaluate the potential sources of liability for criminal conduct of third parties, and whether established notions of search and seizure will need to changes as we enter an era of driverless and even passengerless vehicles.
