Ethical considerations for autonomous vehicles (AVs) go
beyond the “trolley problem” to include such aspects as risk /
benefit trade-offs, informed consent, risk responsibility and
risk mitigation within a system of systems. In this paper we
present a methodology for arguing that the behaviour of a
given AV meets desired ethical characteristics. We identify
some of the ethical imperatives surrounding the introduction
of AVs and consider how decisions made during development
can impact the ethics of the AV’s behaviour.
