Motor insurance and driverless cars

Driverless cars

Driverless cars are increasingly a phenomenon of our streets, with trials taking place in a variety of places including California, Southampton and Gothenburg already now. But how will these vehicles be insured? Who is responsible if something goes wrong - the manufacturer or the 'driver'? And who will pay where neither is responsible? Matthew Channon is passionate about his research on insurance and driverless cars. He has published articles in academic journals and critical pieces in the Huffington Post and The Conversation, as well as working on his PhD thesis. He regularly speaks at conferences and events on his subject. Matthew's research benefits from the expertise of the Institute of Maritime Law and the University's engineering department on autonomous vessels for cross-disciplinary potential.
