Accelerating the Adoption of Disruptive Technologies: The Impact of COVID-19 on Intention to Use Self-Driving Vehicles

  title={Accelerating the Adoption of Disruptive Technologies: The Impact of COVID-19 on Intention to Use Self-Driving Vehicles},
  author={Maher Said and Emma Zajdela and Amanda Stathopoulos},
One of the most notable global transportation trends is the accelerated pace of development in vehicle automation technologies. Uncertainty surrounds the future of automated mobility as there is no clear consensus on potential adoption patterns, ownership versus shared use status and travel impacts. Adding to this uncertainty is the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic that has triggered profound changes in mobility behaviors as well as accelerated the adoption of new technologies at an… Expand

Assessing Public Opinions of and Interest in New Vehicle Technologies: An Austin Perspective
Technological advances are bringing connected and autonomous vehicles (CAVs) to the ever- evolving transportation system. Anticipating the public acceptance and adoption of these technologies isExpand
Autonomous delivery vehicles to fight the spread of Covid-19 – How do men and women differ in their acceptance?
The results indicate that trust in technology, price sensitivity, innovativeness, performance expectancy, hedonic motivation, social influence, and perceived risk determine behavioural intention, however, some constructs are only significant for women. Expand
The politics of new driving technologies: Political ideology and autonomous vehicle adoption
The results reveal political ideology is an important predictor of individuals’ intent to adopt AVs, as characterized by both willingness to ride in and to own AVs. Expand
A systematic literature review of the factors influencing the adoption of autonomous driving
Stakeholders will need to work on four areas to ensure successful mass adoption of AVs and decrease the chance of failure, which could be sorted into four readiness categories: technology (vehicle technology, safety and ethics), infrastructure, legal, legal and user acceptance and useraccept.

How is COVID-19 reshaping activity-travel behavior? Evidence from a comprehensive survey in Chicago
The novel COVID-19 pandemic has caused upheaval around the world and has led to drastic changes in our daily routines. Long-established routines such as commuting to workplace and in-store shoppingExpand
Modeling Individual Preferences for Ownership and Sharing of Autonomous Vehicle Technologies
Considerable interest exists in modeling and forecasting the effects of autonomous vehicles on travel behavior and transportation network performance. In an autonomous vehicle (AV) future,Expand
Market Penetration Model for Autonomous Vehicles on the Basis of Earlier Technology Adoption Experience
This paper presents an effort to develop a market penetration model for autonomous vehicle (AV) technology adoption on the basis of similar technologies and previous trends in the United States.Expand
An empirical investigation on consumers’ intentions towards autonomous driving
A technology acceptance modelling process by extending the original Technology Acceptance Model (TAM) to explain and predict consumers’ intensions towards AVs and results show that the constructs of perceived usefulness, perceived ease to use, perceived trust and social influence are all useful predictors of behavioral intentions to have or use AVs.
