With technology playing a dominant role and accelerating exponentially in all sectors, autonomous and connected vehicles (AVs/CVs) are no longer things of fiction. They are here and revolutionizing the transportation industry. The digitization of vehicles is already having an impact on automakers, vehicle safety, travel behaviour, fuel costs and travel time. Cities will see a transformation in smart infrastructure to accommodate and enhance communication among the growing number of driverless cars. And as with any innovation, there are the associated legal issues, particularly with respect to regulation, liability, data breaches and cybersecurity.
