With even GM investing in a driverless future, autonomous vehicles, or self-driving cars, may be the greatest disruptive innovation to travel that we have experienced in decades. A fully-automated, self-driving car is able to perceive its environment, determine the optimal route, and drive unaided by human intervention for the entire journey. Self-driving cars have the potential to drastically reduce accidents, travel time, and the environmental impact of road travel. However, obstacles remain for the full implementation of this autonomous technology. Of particular concern with regard to autonomous vehicles are data privacy and security risks that attorneys need to know. David Zetoony and Chris Achatz, Bryan Cave LLP, discuss the evolution of the technology, provide an overview of current legal and regulatory data privacy and security issues that are implicated, and explore specific data privacy and security concerns that will need to be addressed to enable the adoption of autonomous vehicles.
