REFLECTIONS ON THE DEPENDENCY BETWEEN LEVEL OF DRIVER SUPPORT, DRIVER'S SUBJECTIVE AND OBJECTIVE RESPONSIBILITY AND PRODUCT LIABILITY

This paper considers the legal implications of intelligent vehicle highway systems. Liability problems refer not only to system safety and reliability but also to the relationship between system functionality and the subjective expectations of the naive user. Areas studied in particular are a) the correlation between the cognitions of potential customers on subjective responsibility depending on different levels of driver support, b) the subjective reasoning describing subjects' ideas why this is so and c) the consequence for product development and the market introduction of different driver support systems. For the covering abstract see IRRD 882109.
