Risk Analysis, An International Journal has published a special issue, “Social Science of Automated Driving,” which features several articles examining the human side of automated driving, focusing on questions about morality, the role of feeling, trust and risk perceptions.
Autonomous vehicles are more than just an improvement on existing vehicles, they are a brand new technology. The widespread acceptance and adoption of autonomous vehicles hinges less on the technological challenges of creating the vehicles and more on the attitudes and perception of the people the technology is intended to serve. Public uncertainty raises significant societal questions about safety, infrastructure spending, regulations, insurance law and more. This collection of papers underscores the key roles of consumer attitudes and perceptions of risk in understanding acceptance of autonomous vehicles.
