Infographic: 36% hold ‘driver’ responsible for self-driving car accidents

With autonomous vehicles set to be one of the most prominent topics of conversation at Mobile World Congress, we took the opportunity to gather thoughts of our readers on the development of the technology.

What is the biggest roadblock? Who should take the lead on development? Who owns the data? And a potentially controversial topic, who should be liable should a self-driving be involved in an accident? It should be noted that, at this stage, most definitions of ‘self-driving’ still assume some degree of potential in-car human intervention.

The data is the result of snap polls included in our news articles and social media accounts. Check out the results below. If you have any insightful, shocking or fun data which you think is infographic-worthy, feel free to drop a quick email to
