The paper highlights how smart mobility - and in particular its most advanced expression to date,
which is autonomous driving - is a fundamental component of the smart city. However, technological
development in this direction raises the issue of balancing interests with the need to protect personal data, of
which driverless cars collect a huge amount. In this perspective, the main issue is now recognized in the lack of
an adequate legal basis; the solution this essay proposes is that of the provision, by the legislator, of a task of
public interest through the implementation of an ad hoc legislation, of which it offers a possible model.
