“So you want to test your cars in my state?” Best practices and regulatory compliance for public road testing of autonomous and semi-autonomous vehicles

This presentation will examine the laws and regulations that govern AV and HAV testing in the US. Over 50 companies are approved for AV testing in California. Bernard Soriano, deputy director of the California Department of Motor Vehicles, was involved in the approval process for most of them and will explain the nuts and bolts of California AV testing requirements. Grant Law, a lawyer with Shook Hardy and Bacon who specializes in autonomous and semi-autonomous vehicles, will discuss the testing requirements in the other states that currently or are expected to permit AV testing on public roads, including Florida, Arizona, Michigan, Massachusetts, Nevada, Pennsylvania and Connecticut.
