Ethics of autonomous driving: Alexander and Raphael publish white paper with TÜV Süd

Autonomous vehicle technology has developed rapidly in recent years. The transition from test operations to regular use is imminent. Artificial intelligence (AI) plays a crucial role in this development, but this raises ethical and legal concerns about its impact on road transport. However, there are still no conclusive answers to the ethical questions surrounding the introduction of this technology. Risk considerations and ethical impact analyzes are important prerequisites for the development of autonomous vehicle technology and successful market entry. Consideration of ethics will improve the safety, usability and marketability of autonomous vehicles both now and in the future.

The rapid development of technology has the potential to fundamentally revolutionize the transport sector. Autonomous vehicles not only promise increased safety on our roads, but could also optimize traffic flow and reduce environmental impact. But with these advances come complex ethical questions that require thorough analysis. As a company that is aware of its responsibility towards society and the environment, Alexander and Raphael, in collaboration with TÜV Süd, have created a White paper on the topic of "Ethics of Autonomous Driving published.

What ethical considerations are relevant to the development, deployment and use of AVs?

The white paper addresses the pressing issues associated with the introduction of autonomous vehicles. We highlight the challenges in the area of artificial intelligence (AI) and ethics that arise from autonomous driving. We also take into account the latest developments such as the EU AI Act, which sets out important guidelines for dealing with AI in Europe.

The ethics of autonomous driving does not only concern the technical aspects , but also the social and legal framework. Our experts have analyzed the impact on privacy, liability in the event of accidents and the impact on the job market. We are convinced that a holistic view of these topics is essential in order to successfully design and introduce autonomous vehicles. We are proud to be at the forefront of this important discussion and contribute to shaping an ethically responsible future for autonomous driving.

The white paper on the ethics of autonomous driving is now available and can be downloaded from TÜV Süd. We warmly invite you to explore the complex questions raised by this exciting technology. Your opinion and commitment are crucial to ensuring that autonomous driving is not only safe but also ethical.

Together we can shape the future of mobility and ensure that it is built on principles of ethics and responsibility. We look forward to walking this path with you and advancing the ethics of autonomous driving.
