A survey of autonomous driving in the United Kingdom shows that more than half of those questioned are skeptical of this new type of movement. Among the participants, 55% said it would not be convenient to use a car without a driver If you get that chance.
The study by Digi Cities, a company that specializes in integrating smart city technologies, revealed that there are 2,500 participants. 30% of respondents believe that self-driving vehicles are safer than traditional vehicles And 26% did not decide on the topic.
The initiative is part of “Project Endeavor”, a movement project designed to accelerate and scale the adoption of autonomous vehicle services across the UK, and to enhance the capabilities of this technology.
Last year, the project was passed The first road test with self-driving vehicles covering several cities in the UK. Tests with models fitted by Oxpodica, a software development company for autonomous vehicles, took place in London, Oxford and Birmingham.
In the English capital, in two weeks, 70 participants were invited to travel the 8-kilometer route, which exposed vehicles to different traffic and weather conditions.
For DG cities, road trials have demonstrated the importance of public testing in building confidence in autonomous driving technology. 68.3% of participants agreed that non-driving vehicles are safer than man-driven vehicles, eventually increasing to 83.6%..
