In its Communication “On the road to automated mobility: An EU strategy for mobility of the future”, the European Commission has announced the creation of a dedicated Expert Group to address specific ethical issues raised by driverless mobility, specifically connected and automated driving related to road transport. This group of experts is expected to work in liaison with the European Group on Ethics in Science and New Technologies (EGE), the European AI Alliance and the Ethics Task Force (established by the member states at the second High Level Meeting of EU Transport Ministers on Connected and Automated Driving in Frankfurt in September 2017) in order to stimulate a discussion at both cross-sectoral and supranational level. The Expert Group will help to address legitimate societal and ethical concerns that are essential for securing public acceptance and trust, by assisting policymakers and designers in the safe, sustainable and efficient transition to connected and automated mobility.
