The Times of India reported that Germany is planning new legislation to require manufacturers of cars equipped with an autopilot function to install a black box to help determine responsibility in the event of an accident, transport ministry sources told Reuters.

Under the proposal from Transport Minister Alexander Dobrindt, drivers will not have to pay attention to traffic or concentrate on steering, but must remain seated at the wheel so they can intervene in the event of an emergency.

According to the proposals, manufacturers will also be required to install a black box that records when the autopilot system was active, when the driver drove and when the system requested that the driver take over.
