Mobileye has developed a mathematical model that spares an autonomous vehicle from the blame for an accident as long as it’s following a pre-determined set of “clear rules for fault in advance.”

An academic paper and layman’s summary paper co-authored by Professors Shashua and Shai Shalev-Shwartz (Mobileye’s VP of Technology) details “a formal, mathematical formula” to ensure that a self-driving vehicle “operates in a responsible manner and doesn’t cause accidents.” Perhaps more important is that this presentation appears to signal the desire of Intel/Mobileye to collaborate with the industry on standards that “definitively assign accident fault” when human-driven and self-driving vehicles inevitably collide. The objective is a mathematical model that spares an autonomous vehicle (AV) from the blame for an accident as long as it’s following a pre-determined set of “clear rules for fault in advance.”
