This new title covers the implications of the Automated and Electric Vehicles Act 2018 and breaks down this new and developing area of law.

It covers the topography of the Advanced Driver Assistance Systems ('ADAS'), Automated Vehicles ('AV') and Electric Vehicles ('EV') legal landscape and considers the laws applying to those systems in three broad areas of law: civil law; criminal law and public law.

The Automated and Electric Vehicles Act 2018 enables consumers in the United Kingdom to benefit from improvements in transport technology and sets out the regulatory framework to enable new transport technology to be invented, designed, made and used in the United Kingdom

With the development of AVs comes numerous questions such as:
- How safe will AVs be?
- Who will be in control?
- Who is responsible if there is an accident caused by an AV?
- How will the owner's data be used and where will it be stored?
- How robust are AVs against hacking
- What are the insurance implications?
- What happens if there is a problem with the software updates or the owner doesn't upload a software update?

The book helps lawyers and judges approach the challenging task of presenting and adjudicating ADAS and AV cases, including cases in which AI plays a part. It is also of great interest to non-lawyers working in the field (industry and government) who need to know the principles of British AV law and to students studying law subjects with AV and AI components.
