Accident-Free Driverless Cars?

Autonomous vehicle technology developer Mobileye provided the industry with proposed standards to control how self-driving cars operate. These standards, which are based on mathematical formulas, are meant to ensure that the self-driving car does not cause accidents, and to determine how liability will be assigned if an accident occurs. Thus, for example, the standards might ensure that a self-driving car is far enough from a vehicle in front of it to stop safely, and allocate fault in the event a human driver cuts off the self-driving car and is then rear-ended.
