3:05 – 4:05 p.m.         Regulatory Changes to Support Autonomous Vehicles

Both traditional and non-traditional car manufacturers are focused on bringing semi-autonomous or even autonomous vehicles to market – perhaps within the next half decade.  Meeting these goals will depend on numerous regulatory changes from both the Capitol Hill and various federal agencies, including the NHTSA and FCC.  This panel looks at issues that must be addressed before real deployment can occur.
