Autonomous Vehicles: Considerations for Personal and Commercial Lines Insurers

Presented by the Excess/Surplus/Specialty Lines Interest Group

Wednesday, April 25, 2018  2:00 pm Eastern

What it’s about:

Since the early 1960s, the insurance industry has been a major force behind some of the most significant advances in highway and vehicle safety, including electronic stability control requirements, seat belt use and automobile crash-worthiness. Now, accident avoidance and autonomous vehicle (AV) technologies offer another opportunity in vehicle safety to go beyond keeping people safe in a crash to avoiding the crash altogether. Data from tests conducted by the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS) show vehicle safety systems that are considered the building blocks of fully autonomous vehicles have been successful at reducing accidents. At the same time, AV technology could give rise to new and potentially costly liability exposures with characteristics that emerge along with the technology's evolution from partially to fully autonomous.

At the conclusion of this webinar, the active participant will understand:

  • What defines an autonomous vehicle

  • The significant safety and economic benefits of autonomous vehicles

  • The insurance implications and liability shifts that can occur

  • Key factors that could temper progress 

Who should attend:

Risk or insurance professionals that expect autonomous vehicles to become a significant part of their operations or motor portfolio would benefit from attending this webinar. The webinar will also be valuable to those who, as consumers, are concerned about the safety and use of autonomous vehicles.
