Issues & Ideas - "Smart Regulations for the Coming Driverless Car Revolution" (November 9, 2017)

ii

As you read this, a future that features driverless cars on city streets, interstate highways and maybe in your driveway is steadily unfolding. But before this future fully arrives, policymakers need to think hard about how to properly regulate these new technologies. Regulations, after all, are powerful and often blunt tools — they can be used to foster innovation, competition and economic growth, and they can be used to prevent change, snuff out invention and slow technological advances. The predicted benefits of autonomous vehicles to society are large and widespread, and Michigan needs to be ensure that its residents can take full advantage of these upsides.

This event will feature a panel of speakers who will each discuss an important element of creating smart regulations to support the future autonomous vehicle revolution.
