The House of Lords will today begin its inquiry into driverless vehicles and their future on UK roads.
The House of Lords Science and Technology Committee will hear evidence from government officials and academics.
The deployment of driverless vehicles, also known as autonomous vehicles, on UK roads raises many questions from who would be legally responsible in the case of accident.
The inquiry will also consider whether the UK is making sufficient preparations to infrastructure and regulation development.
This session provides an opportunity for the Committee to assess how far away the UK is from the deployment of driverless vehicles on roads.
The Committee will also explore the progress sectors such as the marine industry and agriculture have made in developing their use off-road.
