Under the auspices of the Federal Ministry of Transport and Digital Infrastructure, the Ethics Committee on Automated and Connected Driving (a group of 14 experts of ethics, law and technology under the leadership of Udo di Fabio, former judge of the Federal Constitutional Court) has presented its guidelines for programming automated and connected cars. The report contains 20 guidelines and, in particular, it states that automated and connected driving is ethically required if it causes fewer accidents than human driving. The report goes on to state that protection of human life should prevail over the protection of property in situations of danger. For issues of liability, the driver should also always be clearly documented (whether it is the computer or the human) and must have the right to decide on the transfer and use of their car data.
