The Ethics Commission on Automated Driving set up by Federal Minister Alexander Dobrindt presented its report. In this report, the body of experts, headed by Professor Udo Di Fabio, a former Federal Constitutional Court judge, has developed guidelines for the programming of automated driving systems.
“In the era of the digital revolution and self-learning systems, human-machine interaction raises new ethical questions. Automated and connected driving is the most recent innovation where this interaction is to be found across the board. The Ethics Commission at the Federal Ministry of Transport and Digital Infrastructure has performed absolutely pioneering work in this field and developed the first guidelines in the world for automated driving. This means that we remain at the forefront of Mobility 4.0 on the international stage,” said Alexander Dobrindt.
“The Ethics Commission on Automated and Connected Driving has developed initial guidelines for policymakers and lawmakers that will make it possible to approve automated driving systems but that set out special requirements in terms of safety, human dignity, personal freedom of choice and data autonomy,” said Prof. Di Fabio.
The Federal Ministry of Transport and Digital Infrastructure’s Ethics Commission comprises 14 academics and experts from the disciplines of ethics, law and technology. Among these are transport experts, legal experts, information scientists, engineers, philosophers, theologians, consumer protection representatives as well as representatives of associations and companies.
