After Tempe fatality, self-driving car developers must engage with public now or risk rejection

Companies developing autonomous vehicles are missing out on the local knowledge and values of the people who live where these cars are tested. And that lack of engagement sets up bigger problems.
There are calls for strong action, including criminal prosecution, following a fatal accident involving an Uber self-driving car. Uber

Legal lessons for Australia from Uber’s self-driving car fatality

Elaine Herzberg's death will provide the impetus for clearer liability rules for self-driving cars. Australia is wise to adopt a wait-and-watch approach and maintain its human-first orientation.
Autonomous vehicles are information-rich platforms thanks to the range of sensors on board that track, monitor and measure everything. Uber

Who’s to blame when driverless cars have an accident?

Sensors that monitor everything a self-driving vehicle does can help determine who is responsible in the case of an accident – the manufacturer, the service centre or the vehicle owner.

Utopia or nightmare? The answer lies in how we embrace self-driving, electric and shared vehicles

Self-driving, shared, electric vehicles and increasing urban density represent four disruptions that will transform city life. But a transport utopia isn't a guaranteed outcome of their interactions.

Are autonomous cars really safer than human drivers?

Comparing crash rates between humans and self-driving cars requires more data than anyone currently collects. And some of it will be quite hard to figure out.

Redefining ‘safety’ for self-driving cars

If autonomous vehicles are going to be safer than human drivers, they'll need to improve their ability to perceive and understand their surroundings – and become the ultimate defensive drivers.
Is chancellor of the exchequer, Philip Hammond, betting on tech utopia with plans to see autonomous vehicles on UK roads by 2021? EU2016SK

Budget 2017: UK’s driverless cars stuck on testing roundabout

It's going to be difficult for UK government-backed autonomous vehicle projects to compete with Silicon Valley – unless they have something neat under the bonnet.

Coming soon to a highway near you: truck platooning

Elon Musk's new Semi has platooning capability - where multiple trucks commute in a line with a single driver in the lead vehicle. But could it work in Australia?

Freeing up the huge areas set aside for parking can transform our cities

Cities around the world are starting to rethink the vast areas of land set aside for parking. The convergence of several trends likely will mean this space becomes available for other uses.

Driverless vehicles could bring out the best – or worst – in our cities by transforming land use

It's clear autonomous vehicles will disrupt our cities, their land use and planning. Whether they make urban life better or worse depends on how well we anticipate and adapt to their impacts.
