Autonomous or driverless vehicles are increasingly being used, not only in the military but also general society. As a result, many tasks are being identified that autonomous technology can undertake more readily than humans.
This intelligent automation presents a range of challenges for researchers, developers, users and procurers of such systems. These include the technical challenges of developing and integrating the systems that deliver the functionality of automated vehicles, which need to be agile, versatile, persistent and reliable.

The advances in computing and technology that are increasing the cognitive and decision-making capabilities of autonomous systems also raise legal challenges and questions around how they fit into existing legal frameworks. There may even be a potential need for the development of a new legal framework.

This Knowledge Works lecture will take you into the world of autonomous vehicles, exploring not only their future potential and impact, but also the legal frameworks around them and the potential implications of taking people out of the decision-making process.
