Autonomous driving is currently one of the hottest topics in the automotive industry. A recent study released by Intel predicts a $7 trillion market for self-driving cars by 20501. The same study estimates that around 585,000 lives could be saved between 2035 and 2045 by replacing the driver with a computer. However, implementation of fully autonomous driving is attended by multiple legal challenges and changes. Besides liability, data security and other issues, autonomous driving will also have a significant impact on the automotive IP landscape.
Our partner Thorsten Haslinde will be discussing about the interaction of autonomous driving and IP with leaders from the automotive environment at the symposium “Law & Autonomous Driving” on October 19, 2017 in Nuremberg, Germany. Information on the symposium and program can be found here (symposium and documents in German language only):
