Report Summary:

The development of autonomous vehicle technology presents a regulatory challenge as governments balance the adoption of ADAS and autonomous vehicle technologies while ensuring these systems are safe for use on public roads. There is still confusion between regions and countries when it comes to ADAS and autonomous vehicle regulations and liability in the case of an accident due to the general lack of harmonized regulation.
