Companies operating in or around the autonomous vehicles industry face a growing patchwork of complex and, in some cases, underdeveloped laws, policies, and regulations. These legal and policy frameworks can vary greatly by jurisdiction, even within a single country.
Dentons’ 2022 Global Guide to Autonomous Vehicles provides a detailed roadmap of the developing policy, regulatory and legal landscape for autonomous vehicles, as well as the specific driving forces and roadblocks across key areas that will define the global mobility revolution.
What does the guide cover?
Authored by our global autonomous vehicles team members, the guide covers four core areas:
- Regulatory developments and roadblocks
- Driverless testing and deployment
- Connected vehicles and logistics: Developments in data privacy, 5G, electric vehicles and more
- Driving forces: Key entities, sectors and individuals who are influencing autonomous vehicles
We asked, you answered: Key findings from our Inaugural global autonomous vehicles survey
As a new addition for 2022, our guide also includes the key findings of Dentons’ inaugural global autonomous vehicles survey, which captured insights from respondents around the world.
Specifically, we have addressed the following key findings in our report:
- Impact of autonomous technologies: The need for supply chain solutions is front of mind
- Safety remains the top concern and crucial for autonomous vehicles to continue to progress
- Connected vehicles will transform society, not autonomous vehicles alone
- Electric vehicle deployment will pave the way for autonomous vehicles
- What’s on the horizon? Timeline for autonomous vehicle development
