Self-Driving Cars – Making an Ethical Choicefamily icon

This interactive demonstration uses a miniature autonomous car powered by robotic vision algorithms to investigate the challenging ethical problems faced by self-driving cars.

Audience members get involved by making "life-saving" decisions in several mock scenarios similar to that of the infamous trolley ethics problem (who should you hit with the car?). Additionally, the demonstration will provide information surrounding the many technical challenges facing self-driving technologies and help provide insight into what we may see in the near future.
