Implementable Ethics for Autonomous Vehicles (2015)

Book Cover
Springer Berlin Heidelberg

As agents moving through an environment that includes a range of other road users - from pedestrians and cyclists to other human or automated drivers - automated vehicles continuously interact with the humans around them. The nature of these interactions is a result of the programming in the vehicle and the priorities placed there by the programmers. Just as human drivers display a range of driving styles and preferences, automated vehicles represent a broad canvas on which the designers can craft the response to different driving scenarios.
