We introduce the Autonomous Vehicle Acceptance Model (AVAM), a model of user acceptance for autonomous vehicles, adapted from existing models of user acceptance for generic technologies. [] Key Result Results showed that users were less accepting of high autonomy levels and displayed significantly lower intention to use highly autonomous vehicles. We also assess expected driving engagement of hands, feet and eyes which are shown to be lower for full autonomy compared with all other autonomy levels.

Individual Predictors of Autonomous Vehicle Public Acceptance and Intention to Use: A Systematic Review of the Literature

Fully autonomous vehicles (AV) would potentially be one of the most disruptive technologies of our time. The extent of the prospective benefits of AVs is strongly linked to how widely they will be

Perception of autonomous vehicles by the modern society: a survey

Autonomous vehicles (AVs) are undergoing rapid worldwide development. They will only become a success if they are accepted by their users. Therefore, there is a need for user acceptance for these

The Determinants of Consumer Acceptance of Autonomous Vehicles: A Case Study in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia

ABSTRACT The factors affecting the acceptance of Autonomous Vehicles (AVs) in Saudi Arabia were examined by conducting a stated choice survey among 500 participants. Descriptive analysis showed that

A Wizard of Oz Field Study to Understand Non-Driving-Related Activities, Trust, and Acceptance of Automated Vehicles

Real-world insights into the attitude towards highly automated driving and non-driving-related activities (NDRAs) are presented and it is found that the users’ trust a human driver more than a system, safety is the main acceptance factor, and the most popular NDRAs were being idle and the use of the smartphone.

ExplAIn Yourself! Transparency for Positive UX in Autonomous Driving

An initial guideline for autonomous driving experience design is contributed, bringing together the areas of user experience, explainable artificial intelligence and autonomous driving.

Barriers to AV Bus Acceptance: A National Survey and Research Agenda

Findings from a national survey of 401 participants indicate that individual differences influenced trust, attitude, and intention to ride AV buses.

Toward Adaptive Driving Styles for Automated Driving with Users' Trust and Preferences

The results indicate that users best trust AVs that closely match their preferences, and it is believed that exploring the effects of AV driving style on users' trust and workload will provide necessary steps towards developing human-aware automated systems.

“I’d like an Explanation for That!”Exploring Reactions to Unexpected Autonomous Driving

Six categories are identified to describe the main concerns and topics during unexpected driving behavior and design implications for autonomous vehicles are suggested, in particular related to collaboration insights, user mental models and explanation requests.



Towards Autonomous Cars: The Effect of Autonomy Levels on Acceptance and User Experience

It is shown that UA and UX are highest in levels of autonomy that already have been deployed in modern cars and that pre-experience with ADAS and demographics, such as age and gender, have an influence on UA andUX.

Motorists' preferences for different levels of vehicle automation

This report builds on a recent series of reports addressing public opinion, human factors, and safety-related issues with self-driving vehicles (Schoettle and Sivak, 2014, 2015; Sivak and Schoettle,

A Survey of Public Opinion about Autonomous and Self-Driving Vehicles in the U.S., the U.K., and Australia

This survey examined public opinion regarding self-driving-vehicle technology in three major English-speaking countries—the U.S., the U.K., and Australia. The survey yielded usable responses from

Designing Autonomy in Cars: A Survey and Two Focus Groups on Driving Habits of an Inclusive User Group, and Group Attitudes Towards Autonomous Cars

Maintaining safety, trust and control were themes commonly identified in both focus groups, while unique views and concerns, relating to different characteristics of the group were expressed, which can inform an inclusive, user-centred design of autonomous vehicle interfaces.

Obtaining design requirements from the public understanding of driverless technology

Despite a large literature on autonomous vehicles and a large number of relevant surveys examining public perception of self-driving vehicles, recent studies suggest that reported public perception

Self-Driving Vehicles: Determinants of Adoption and Conditions of Usage

This study gathered empirical evidence on adoption patterns of self-driving vehicles, their likely use, and how that use might influence the amount of travel, mode choice, auto ownership, and other

An Evaluation of Inclusive Dialogue-Based Interfaces for the Takeover of Control in Autonomous Cars

An evaluation of dialogue-based interfaces, mediating the driver to take back control from the autonomous mode of a car, and design guidelines on utilizing dialogue as a means of keeping the driver in the loop during a takeover were derived.

Predicting information technology usage in the car: towards a car technology acceptance model

A theoretical car technology acceptance model (CTAM) is proposed by incorporating context-related determinants from an extensive literature review and a content analysis and incorporating these determinants into the Unified Theory of Acceptance and Use of Technology (UTAUT) model.
