The Federal Trade Commission (FTC) and the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) co-hosted a workshop on connected and automated vehicles to discuss safety and privacy concerns.

The program included panel discussions on connected vehicles, cyber security and individual privacy, with experts from the FTC, NHTSA, General Motors, the Consumer Technology Association, the Alliance of Automobile Manufacturers, Global Automakers and many others.

At these discussions panelists debated the benefits and risks of self-driving technologies. During the discussions speakers touched on issues such as individual privacy, repairs, and the need for standardized diagnostics system.

In looking a the future of connected and autonomous vehicles, some presenters said they believed it was likely that fewer people would own their vehicles outright and companies ultimately become the primary repair shop customer.

All participants, however, supported the concept of government enforcement of the industry’s self-made standards.
