Connected and Automated Vehicles

The automotive industry is on the cusp of an incredible period of innovation and disruption, as vehicles become capable of seamlessly communicating with other vehicles, infrastructure, and pedestrians.

While these new technologies hold tremendous potential to save lives, reduce pollution, and deliver a myriad of societal benefits, they also introduce a host of legal and policy issues.  Our cross-disciplinary team works closely with companies from the automotive, technology, and telecommunications industries, including automotive manufacturers, tier-1 suppliers, chipset/communication system providers, mobile operators, and infrastructure vendors, to tackle a broad range of legal and policy issues relating to spectrum policy, data privacy and ownership, and cybersecurity and the testing, licensing and deployment of new equipment.
