Smart Cars and Spatial Law
As this article in the Telegraph (UK) highlights, smart cars and intelligent transportation systems will raise the complexity and significance of spatial law issues. For example, who owns the data that is collected and how can it be used or shared? What level of expectation of privacy will be reasonable within our cars in the future. Morever, what level of data quality can consumers expect and what will be the potential liability exposure if those expectations are not met? Finally, who will be deciding the answers to these questions: the courts, legislators, industry or the marketplace? Stay tuned - it should be an interesting ride!
