The Institute and Faculty of Actuaries is running a sessional meeting on autonomous vehicles on 28th October.  The session will showcase the work of the IFoA “Autonomous Vehicles” working party alongside a number of expert external presenters. 

The session will consist of two parts:

1. Autonomous Vehicles – where are we now

This will set the scene, explaining what autonomous vehicles are with reference to the 5 levels of autonomy model.  Explore the current state of development and penetration of autonomous vehicles and what is planned for the future.

2. Impacts on the wider insurance industry

The working party has looked at emerging risks associated with AVs and in particular how this may impact the entirety of the insurance industry.  This is not just limited to the traditional motor insurance line of business but has significant impacts in wider areas such as product liability. The panel will also look to examine key considerations such as the impact on insurance operations, the legal and regulatory environment, and data analyses with the introduction of AVs.

The session will run in two parts with external presenters who have expertise in these areas presenting on these topics together with members of the AV working party. Opportunities for the actuarial community and other attendees to contribute will come in the form of longer discussion periods and Q&A sessions incorporating the panel of speakers following each of these short presentations.
