Autonomous Vehicles - Let’s Get Ethical
Autonomous vehicles mean change- and one of the crucial factors to be considered before self-driving vehicles even hit the roads is how they will be able to process “human” decisions that may appear second-nature to us.

The interview below with Dr. Chris Gerdes, Director of the Center for Automotive Research at Stanford, gives an idea of the complexities involved in the ethical debates surrounding autonomous vehicles.

Dr. Gerdes will be discussing this in more detail in a headline presentation at TU-Automotive Detroit (3-4 June), the no.1 show dedicated to evolving automotive technology. Joining him on stage over two days are GM, Volvo, Ford, MIT, Honda, Subaru, TomTom, and more!

Professor Gerdes’ research focuses on the application of dynamic modelling to problems in nonlinear control, estimation and diagnostics.

This has resulted in him leading the team responsible for ‘Shelley’, Stanford’s robotic race car which gets around a 3-mile course in less than 2 1/2 minutes, rivalling professional drivers – a project Chris has presented during TEDx events.

Recent research has devised algorithms which integrate philosophy and ethics into the vehicles decision making process.
