This episode, titled Computer says “GO!”, addresses so-called “eyes off/hands off”, or “Level 3” autonomous vehicles, whereby the car is sufficiently capable that the driver’s role is limited to taking over control when requested by the car to do so. Matthew and Iain flash forward to summer 2023 and an accident involving a Level 3 autonomous vehicle. They consider how existing legal frameworks cope with the liability issues that arise when AI takes control of the driving but where the driver remains in the safety chain as a fallback for when the automation cannot cope.
