On behalf of the Dutch Automated Vehicle Initiative (DAVI) we would like to invite you to a meeting on ethics. The development and activities in the field of automated driving are going quickly and it will also be a an important element of the Dutch EU presidency the first half of 2016. Before the introduction of automated vehicles a lot of technical and ethical questions have to be answered. Who is responsible for an accident? How naughty can software be? How can we introduce vehicles in a responsible manner?

Together we will share the latest advancements in the field of ethics on responsible driving automation. We welcome you to join the discussion and define the next steps together.
