Automated vehicle expert witness candidates typically have extensive experience and knowledge in automotive engineering, autonomous vehicles, electrical engineering, mechanical engineering, and/or vehicle manufacturing. An automotive engineer specializing in driverless cars may also have a background in artificial intelligence, sensors, or safety. Cahn Litigation Services is frequently called upon by law firms to locate an expert witness that can support issues involving autonomous vehicle technology matters.

Automotive technology is moving towards fully automated cars that drive us, instead of us driving them, known as self-driving vehicles. Many cars on the road today have driver assistance technology aimed at safety. These safety technologies use a combination of hardware (sensors, cameras, and radar) and software focused on crash avoidance.

The Society of Automotive Engineers (SAE), places vehicle automation into 6 levels:

An automated vehicle expert witness could provide expertise in intellectual property matters — a patent litigation in federal court or a trade secret dispute. It could be a patent infringement case in the District Court, or a patent case or proceeding in the International Trade Commission (ITC). An automotive expert in autonomous vehicles might provide testimony in matters such as a product liability case, automated vehicles accident investigation, or a personal injury case.

Litigation support by an automated vehicle expert witness could include an expert report, forensic engineering, expert opinion, accident reconstruction, and expert testimony at a trial. In a high-profile case, or litigation involving a significant financial stake, a law firm may request a technical expert with prior expert witness experience. It is essential that an automotive expert witness possess the ability to provide expert testimony in such a manner that a jury and judge can understand the evidence.
