There are known quasi-acceptable (but not perfect) solutions, and some known unacceptable solutions, that have been published over the last fifty years.

The regulators publish a list of all (to them) quasi-acceptable solutions. The regulators further require autonomous vehicles to implement (correctly) all quasi-acceptable solutions, along with a (correct) random selection device for a quasi-solution which, in an trolleyological situation, randomly executes the manoeuvres for that randomly selected quasi-solution.
