Maria Cristina Gaeta


The paper focuses on several regulatory issues related to road safety and data protection. Among other things, it discusses the requirements and the role of the driver, the homologation of self-driving cars and the regulation of the different types of data used and produced by autonomous driving systems, considering the different levels of automation identified in the SAE standard J3016. The recent development of autonomous vehicles asks for regulatory intervention, in relation to road safety and privacy. Therefore, after analyzing the state of the art on road traffic regulation, the contribution proposes the analogical application of some rules relating as well as the introduction of ad hoc legislation for autonomous driving.
