Autonomous vehicles are already on our streets. But are we ready for them?
Autonomous vehicles are already on our streets. But are we ready for them? Before they become ubiquitous, consumers, policymakers, and insurers must reconcile themselves with the challenges that such vehicles present. Simultaneously, they must recognize the opportunities. While such a process will be difficult, it will also create an opening to modernize legacy regulatory structures and to find new opportunities for economic growth.
This session will begin by describing the taxonomy employed to understand autonomous vehicle technology and will then systematically consider the disruptive effects of autonomous vehicles on the insurance industry. Specifically, it will discuss the future of automobile insurance regulation (both state and – potentially – federal); the challenges that autonomous vehicles present to operational concerns like rating, underwriting, and claims management; and, the shifting and unsettled liability landscape. The session will conclude with a description of the most up-to-date legislative and regulatory developments in the field.
