This class is an interdisciplinary problem solving class offered at the Law School through the Problem Solving Initiative (PSI). In the realm of connected and automated vehicles (CAVs), there are trade-offs between standardization, which enhances compatibility and interoperability, and differentiation. Students will consider which CAV features should be standardized (or differentiated), how quickly standardization should be pursued, and what role regulation should play in standardization. Student teams will incorporate ideas from law, engineering, information, business, and other fields to develop an innovative tool.

This class is open to all University of Michigan graduate and professional students. Please note: Non-Law students are responsible for checking with their own schools, colleges, or units to learn if a PSI class will count toward graduation or other departmental requirements.

Non-law graduate/professional students may apply for the course using the PSI application system ( November 4-18, 2019. After the initial application period, students seeking to apply can contact [email protected].
