Dubai's Transport Authority says it wants a quarter of journeys in the UAE city to be driverless by 2030.

Autonomous vehicle company, Cruise, has announced that it will launch its first international robotaxi service in Dubai in 2023, with plans to have up to 4,000 vehicles in operation by 2030. Meanwhile, through the 'Future of Transport' consultation, the UK is seeking views on how the regulatory framework would need to be reformed to allow a transition to connected and autonomous vehicles (CAVs).

But what are the legal and commercial implications of the global roll out of CAVs? What infrastructure will be required to support the new technology; and how do we effectively manage safety and data security risks? How can CAVs be integrated into a city's seamless mobility offering?

Addleshaw Goddard's specialist CAV Team are at the cutting edge of developments in this space, working on ground-breaking projects and providing thought leadership on regulatory reform and technological development. 

We would be delighted if you could join us for a round table dinner (in Dubai or London) with other leaders in this market to discuss how we unlock the opportunities relating to driverless cars.
