Michael Mattioli (Indiana University Maurer School of Law) has posted Autonomy in the Age of Autonomous Vehicles (Boston University Journal of Science and Technology Law, Forthcoming) on SSRN. Here is the abstract:
This essay describes intertwined policy challenges related to autonomous vehicle data. The policy goals of promoting privacy, safety, competition, and commerce are all so deeply intertwined, I conclude, that they must be understood and addressed together. This essay does not attempt to solve the problem. Instead, it presents a descriptive snapshot of the current state of play in the industry and closes by raising a set of questions. I hope these questions will prompt useful discussions among policy experts and the public.
