From vehicles that detect pedestrians in the road to cars capable of navigating urban terrain without human intervention, autonomous driving is currently one of the most intensively researched and publicly followed developments in the automotive realm. This technology could dramatically improve safety, efficiency, and mobility by taking the driver out of the loop wherever computer control is more reliable. Yet it also raises important questions of law and policy that society is only now beginning to understand and address.
The Center for Automotive Research at Stanford (CARS) and the Stanford Law School Center for Internet and Society (CIS) offer a joint residential fellowship to examine the legal and policy aspects of autonomous driving. Read more about Apply To CIS & CARS Joint Fellowship!
