Roundtable: Autonomous driving systems need standards

Advanced Driver Assistance Systems are shaking up the motor market, making cars smarter and safer. While it is expected to reduce the number of claims, this technology also creates new risks, particularly when a car is repaired: already, gaps in knowledge are showing up. So, can insurers keep up with the pace of change or have they already lost control?

ADAS encompass many functionalities: parking assistance, adaptive cruise control, lane departure warnings, pedestrian recognition, and even autonomous braking.

A Post roundtable, in association with Autoglass, looked at the challenges posed by these new technologies. Bringing together experts from automotive engineering and insurance, it sought to find ways to minimise the risks.
