Location: Workshop Room 2, The Autonomous Main Event
Date: September 29, 2021
Time: 14:15 – 16:15 CEST
Following the law on level 3 automated driving in 2017, this year, Germany took a pioneering role and broke new ground with the recent introduction of a new law on autonomous driving that intends to allow “autonomous vehicles” at level 4 for regular operation as soon as 2021. By this legislative move, Germany is the first country in the world to allow driverless cars on the roads in defined operating areas (corresponding to the “operational design domain” or “ODD”).
This workshop will cover the various opportunities and challenges that come with the new regulation, but also the next steps that are still needed for a harmonizing international and European legal framework.
