A Community Survey of Attitudes towards Autonomous Vehicles

Page-Smith, J, Northrop, A.

Autonomous Vehicles

ARSC conference 2017

As the availability of different vehicle technologies increases, the use of completely autonomous vehicles is no longer the stuff of science fiction. The TAC sought to investigate community attitudes to autonomous vehicles. This paper discusses the results of the last two major surveys carried out by the TAC. Probabilistic Graphical Modelling was used to identify the variables that have the highest effect on Willingness to Use autonomous vehicles. Finally, it proposes a hypothesis that the enjoyment of mobile use for social media and other activities directly influences their acceptance of autonomous vehicles.
