New study on user acceptance of driverless cars released
Yesterday, the British UK Autodrive project and Cambridge University released a new study on user acceptance and user behaviour of autonomous cars. The survey established that there is no clear image on acceptance. 10% would most definitely use such offers, 15% would not and 31% are not sure about their stance, despite being well informed about the technology. The majority of Britons would want to order a driverless car via their smartphone and over half of the respondents would use the time to simply enjoy the scenery in front of their eyes. 15% of Britons would use autonomous cars after having consumed alcohol and only one out of five participants would use driverless cars for school runs of their children.
For the survey, Cambridge University collected data from over 2800 individuals on 49 items. More information on the findings is offered by UK Autodrive.
