The report shows how autonomous driving is assessed and how great the desire is to use it. The query of unsupported, open associations without specifications provides an insight into which drivers and obstructive factors currently exist. Quantitative evaluations allow differences in a variety of sub-target groups to be identified. It also provides insights into the psychological motivational structure of drivers and its connection to the desire for autonomous driving.The results can be used to derive indications of the need for action in the automotive and supplier industry to accelerate the diffusion process of the new technologies.
This report is an excerpt from a larger report on the assessment of driver assistance systems and autonomous driving from the perspective of the driver target group. The partial report on driver assistance systems is the property of a project sponsor, therefore the third chapter is not included in this publication. The study part on autonomous driving is made available to the public in extracts.
The analyses are based on face-to-face interviews with 892 people aged between 18 and 88 years in Germany.
