To Crash or To Swerve? New Study Reveals Which Actions Taken by Self-Driving Cars are Morally Defensible

Society for Risk Analysis (SRA)

A new study, “How should autonomous cars drive? A preference for defaults in moral judgments under risk and uncertainty,” published in Risk Analysis: An International Journal addressed this challenge by asking the public what they believed would be the most morally and ethically sound behavior for an autonomous vehicle (AV) faced with an oncoming collision. Even a perfectly functioning AV will not be able to avoid every collision and in some situations, every option will result in some type of crash.
