Presented herein are techniques that enable an administrative authority (e.g., city, municipality, etc.) to determine when a vehicle is under autonomous control, as well as to specifically determine the vendor and software version of the autonomous control system controlling the vehicle. If the vehicle has problems navigating the environment, the details of that problem are reported directly to the administrative authority. Any trending problems detected after a software update to the control systems can be proactively detected and reported to the vehicle vendor and upstream aggregation systems.
