Distributive Justice and Autonomous Vehicles

February 21 @ 4:00 pm - 5:00 pm

Dr. Nick Evans (UMass-Lowell)

Research into the ethics of autonomous vehicles focuses, almost exclusively, on whether decisions by individual cars conform to, reflect, or promote certain values. Less discussed is whether, or how, autonomous vehicles ought to be developed and deployed from the perspective of distributive justice. Here, I argue that autonomous vehicles—as an object of moral concern and as a component in transportation systems—ought to be considered in terms of distributive justice.
