Driverless Cars – The Future of the Auto Industry
Part 1: Autonomous Vehicle Technology and its Challenges
By Jonathan Grnak, Danson Recht LLP, Toronto

One thing is certain: driverless vehicles are coming. The question, however, is when and to what extent.

This article will discuss the technology behind autonomous vehicles, as well as some issues that autonomous vehicles will need to overcome in order to become a viable automotive technology, both practically and legally.
