Library of Parliament Research Publication on Driverless Cars

The Library of Parliament recently released a research publication on driverless cars entitled Automated and Connected Vehicles: Status of the Technology and Key Policy Issues for Canadian Governments (dated September 2016):
"This document provides background information on automated and connected vehicles (AVs and CVs), and highlights some of the key policy issues related to their deployment. The first section defines AVs and CVs. The second section explains when these vehicles are expected to be deployed. The third section provides an overview of the potential benefits of this technology. Finally, the paper explains the federal government’s jurisdiction related to AVs and CVs and outlines some of the key policy challenges raised by the deployment of these vehicles."
The new technology raises issues relating to safety standards, the management of wireless spectrum, policing, and privacy concerns, among many others.
