‘Professor Lim’s expertise in both law and computer science is evident in this clear and crisp assessment of liability issues surrounding Automated Vehicles (AV’s). She demystifies the science and technology underlying this phenomenon that has captured the public imagination and left law and policy-makers scrambling. Transcending the hype around AVs, Professor Lim’s thoughtful and tech-savvy application of negligence principles provides an essential framework through which the risks and benefits of AV technology can be more cogently assessed and addressed.’

‘Self-driving cars are the vanguard of AI-based autonomous systems, machines which are about to transform our world. This book is a wonderful introduction and resource, both to the technology and the legal questions that we are facing. The author provides a clear how-to guide to regulating systems that are hard-to-understand but which, within a few years, will be piloting large pieces of metal at speed down roads that we used to have to ourselves. Recommended for anyone who thinks about what the future should look like.’
