Advanced Driver Monitoring Systems and the Law: Artificial Intelligence for the Road

Artificial intelligence technologies are expected to usher in a future where fully autonomous vehicles take people to their destinations without direct driver interaction.  During the transition from driver to driverless cars, roads will be filled with highly autonomous vehicles (HAVs) in which drivers behind the wheel are required to take control of vehicle operations at a moment’s notice. This is where AI-based advanced driver monitoring systems (DMS) play a role: ensuring HAV drivers are paying attention.  As big automakers incorporate advanced DMS into more passenger cars, policymakers will seek to ensure that these systems meet acceptable performance and safety standards as…
