Meaningful Human Control over Automated Driving Systems

Project leader: Prof. Bart van Arem

And who is responsible when things go wrong? This project focuses on socially responsible transition to automated vehicles and will develop guidelines for this. Developing a theory of “meaningful human control” of automatic vehicles is central in this research project.
