AmiMoJo writes: In a country known for its production of premium vehicles, new ethical guidelines have been set not for these car’s drivers, but for the cars themselves.

- Autonomous driving systems become an ethical imperative if the systems cause fewer accidents than human drivers.

- Human safety must always take top priority over damage to animals or property.

- In the event of an unavoidable accident, any discrimination based on age, gender, race, physical attributes, or any other distinguishing factors are impermissible.

- In any driving situation, the party responsible, whether human or computer, must be clearly regulated and apparent.

- Drivers retain sole ownership over whether or not their vehicle data is forwarded or used by third parties.

- While vehicles may react autonomously in the event of emergency situations, humans shall regain control during more morally ambiguous events.
