Driverless cars are a transformative công nghệ that could have important implications for society, national security, the economy, and the environment. On May 8, the Center for technology Innovation & the U.S. Department of State hosted a panel of experts lớn discuss the potential for driverless cars domestically và abroad. The potential benefits of autonomous vehicles are exciting but innovators và government officials must first overcome several barriers to change.

Defining a driverless car

There is no generally accepted definition of a driverless car. The phrase connotes a car with total autonomy. Cars today already include automated technologies including anti-lock brakes, cruise control, lane assist, và active parking assist. There is no bright line for the number of automatic features a car must have before it may be described as “driverless.”

Changing workplace

Automation is transforming the way our economy works, for example ATMs và self-checkout lanes in the grocery store. In the future, computers will be able to bởi vì many of the things that only a human can vày today. Driverless cars could displace parts of the labor force. For example, automated trucks could remove the need for human drivers in some sectors.

Cultural differences on data collection

Autonomous cars use a sophisticated set of sensors khổng lồ collect and process data in order khổng lồ make decisions. Data collection is controversial in the international community. European nations & the U.S. Have different regulatory regimes governing consumer privacy. This could create a non-tariff barrier lớn the trade of automobiles.


Using computer systems connected to lớn the internet in driverless cars exposes them khổng lồ hacks. It’s possible lớn create some safeguards against “car hacks.” For example, a car that collects a small amount of data by itself for operation and then deletes it after use will be more difficult lớn attack.

Liability for accidents involving a driverless oto is also a serious issue. It’s unclear who is responsible if an autonomous car seriously injures another person. Even more complicated is if a driverless car is forced into a situation due to lớn another driver’s error or bad weather and the computer must choose between two different accidents. Programing in those situations is fraught with ethical & legal conundrums.

Benefits of automated vehicles

Reducing traffic fatalities


Personal convenience

Many people would prefer a more relaxed environment as they are commuting to & from work. An automated vehicle could function as a di động office during a long commute. There are even luxury oto brands that are designing automated vehicles to lớn serve as a mobile lounge for traveler comfort & privacy.

Fuel efficiency

The trucking industry consumes a very large amount gas in the United States. Automated vehicles can use fuel more efficiently by platooning, the adaptive cruise control function that allows trucks lớn stay a certain distance away from each other & travel at exactly the same speed. Manufacturers could also thiết kế electric or hydrogen powered trucks.


Automated cars have the potential to increase mobility & access to life-saving services. This technology could have revolutionary implications for disabled people who are unable to manage their own transportation. Automated cars could also be used lớn gain access khổng lồ healthcare services without relying on family members or a oto service. Driverless cars could also benefit people in rural communities who lack easy access to public transportation.

Policy Recommendations

International cooperation

Today’s cars have parts that are manufactured in different countries and sold across borders. Policy makers throughout the world need to lớn coordinate their efforts with other governments. Clashing IP, environmental, health, và safety regulations could stymie the potential benefits of automated vehicles.

Safety & testability

Every technical system has the potential khổng lồ fail. Autonomous cars must be tested & certified on an international level. There is a need for harmonization in modeling, simulation testing, and system verification to lớn ensure the safety of these vehicles across borders.
