The Hartford Center for Mature Market Excellence

In 2015 The Hartford and the MIT AgeLab conducted a multi-method research project with 302 drivers ages 50-69 to assess their likelihood to adopt current vehicle technologies. In the study, participants viewed a video about seven vehicle technologies (blind-spot warning systems, reverse back-up cameras, smart headlights, collision avoidance systems, lane departure warnings, parking assistance and adaptive cruise control), as well as a video about a self-driving car, and responded to the videos via a perception analyzer tool. Participants also completed a conjoint analysis, a small group discussion and pre/post-test questionnaires.

      I’m curious as to who will be held liable when driverless vehicles begin causing accidents. Since no institution so far has been able to secure it’s data from outside attack, it is unreasonable to assume the software in the proposed vehicles will be out of reach to hackers…or electrical storms and run of the mill human manufacturing errors. Will it be the vehicle owner? The auto manufacturer?
