FPF Comments on CA Public Utilities Commission Autonomous Vehicle Passenger Service Proceeding

Last week, the Future of Privacy Forum filed written comments in response to the California Public Utilities Commission’s¬†proposed decision¬†authorizing pilot programs for passenger service in Autonomous Vehicles. The CPUC is a consumer protection agency that oversees, among other topics, provision of passenger service in the state. The proposed decision called for a number of criteria to be met by companies seeking to operate AV passenger service, including reporting of communications between passengers and remote operators of driverless AVs, as well as aggregated operations data.
