Project Details


Worldwide almost 3700 people are killed daily in traffic accidents. More new cars are now being equipped with automated vehicle technology to help reduce the number of driving-related injuries and deaths. Most automation in automobiles today is implemented to eliminate human errors caused by driver distraction, fatigue, speeding, and inexperience. To fully realize the benefits and optimize utilization of automated vehicles, people must trust their ability to provide safe, efficient, and effective transportation. This project will study factors that impact acceptance and adoption of shared autonomous shuttles by vulnerable road users.
