Self-driving car business: what regulations, which legal issues for Japan?

25 avril 2017

Tax and Regulations Committee

Seminar, together with an illustrative video

There's no question that self-driving cars are coming and that their business potential is huge — the real debate at this point is who will get there first. Although Japan is seeking to promote the spread of automated driving in the run-up to the 2020 Tokyo Olympics, the government needs to address legal issues that were previously unknown, and set new safety regulations.

In the latest version of the Science and Technology Basic Plan drawn up and approved by the Cabinet Office in January 2016, the creation of the world’s first “Super Smart Society” is described as a major objective for Japan.

In order to realize the Super Smart Society (or Society 5.0), which includes living together with robots and AI, it is necessary to connect various “things” through a network to highly systematize them as well as coordinate and harmonize several different systems. It is also emphasized that, in order to promote coordination of several systems and improve industrial competitiveness, an “intelligent transport system” (ITS) including self-driving cars should  be particularly developed.


Together with an illustrative video, this seminar will discuss the most up-to-date movements of the self-driving car business in Japan, with a focus on the legal issues which could arise in this business as well as the issues related to patent strategy.
