“Germany will become a world leader in autonomous driving. We are setting the pace for this: With our new law, we are becoming an international pioneer and putting an end to cumbersome individual permits,” says German Federal Transport Minister Andreas Scheuer.

The proposed regulation, still requiring approval by the Bundestag and the Bundesrat, contemplates regulation of autonomous driving, including technical requirements, licensing, testing and data processing.

Meanwhile in the U.S., the California Consumer Privacy Act (CCPA) applies to data collected from vehicles as do the auto industry privacy principles and the upcoming legislation in Massachusetts  (the delayed amendment to the Right to Repair law), Washington State (Washington Privacy Act bill) and Virginia.
