Safety and Cybersecurity Issues in Contracting for Autonomous Vehicle Technologies

As vehicles incorporate increasingly sophisticated automation features, the automotive industry must confront the challenge of negotiating contracts that address the related evolving safety regulations and growing cyber threats. Industry participants—vehicle manufacturers, their suppliers and dealers—will need to think disruptively to mitigate and allocate the risks inherent in such a revolutionary shift. Please join Mayer Brown partners Linda Rhodes, Marjorie Loeb and David Simon for a 30-minute teleconference during which they will discuss:

  • NHTSA’s determination that autonomous vehicle technologies constitute motor vehicle equipment
  • The evolution in contract negotiations required as new technology providers are brought into the fold
    • A case study: lessons learned from a recent NHTSA investigation
  • The contractual implications of growing cyber threats arising from new technologies embedded in, and connected to, vehicles
