Financial journalist Victor Smart quotes Alex (the author of “The Law of Driverless Cars: An Introduction”) in his article on Driverless Cars.
Financial journalist Victor Smart considers the transformation of road transport by the three “megatrends” of electrification, car sharing and autonomous driving. Victor quotes Alex (the author of “The Law of Driverless Cars: An Introduction”) on the expanded use of personal data that is likely to follow – and the need for the law to keep up with technology:
“The government’s stated approach to driverless vehicles is to leave current laws in place but to introduce reforms “as we gather real life experience”. But lawyer Alex Glassbrook, author of The Law of Driverless Cars, explains that we will be entering uncharted territory, especially in terms of data. ‘The app car is set to be the most significant object an individual has for giving and receiving data about themselves, with the volume rising massively’, says Glassbrook.”
