IINB PowerTalks: Driverless Vehicles


NB [Map]
Date and Time: January 24, 2019 9:00 am - 11:30 am

In this PowerTalk, you will receive information in two modules:

1st module:
Taking the Mystery Out of Black Boxes:

At the end of this module, you will have a greater understanding of the history, development and evolution of vehicle black boxes, the type of information it records, and how this information can be used on claims to deny or favourably settle a claim due to overwhelming evidence. Black Box evidence can provide great leverage and strategy on a claim because it ultimately tells you what really happened. This module serves as some background for our next module, as the vehicle black box is the ‘brain’ behind autonomous vehicle functions.

2nd Module:
Autonomous Vehicles; The Driverless Frontier:

At the end of this module, you will have a greater understanding of driverless vehicle technology, how it works, and why it is being developed. We will also explore various topics within this field that are still in the works and being debated, such as cyber security issues, exposure to other parties/insurers, ethical issues and more.
