Driverless Vehicles: New Developments in Regulation

Pavilion F, conference hall F1
Digital Transformation
The digital development of the transportation industry would be impossible to imagine without the introduction of unmanned transport, which promises to improve the reliability and safety of transport, increase the country’s transit potential, and expand integration of the domestic transport industry into the global transport space. The rapid development of information technology and widespread automation call for radically new approaches to legal regulation in the transport sector. One of the key tasks in the development, introduction, and wide-spread application of all types of unmanned transport for passenger and freight transportation is to address technical, technological, and infrastructural issues while also creating a legal framework that takes into account the interests of federal executive authorities and transport organizations.
• Preparing the legal and regulatory framework for the introduction of autonomous maritime and river transport navigation – what else needs to be done?
• Legal regulation in the field of unmanned air transport: proposals and regulations adopted.
• What other steps need to be taken to get unmanned vehicles on public roads?
• Unmanned trains: the introduction and development of unmanned railways.
