Although tests are ongoing, and manufacturers are announcing their concept plans, there have been no major controversies. Therefore, Autovista Group wants to revisit a question asked earlier in the year for its latest survey. We want to ask whether potential users of autonomous vehicles would feel safe giving control to the car, and in what situations. Vehicle manufacturers are increasingly financing autonomous vehicle projects, which they believe to be the future of mobility. Trends suggest that consumers will start to move away from traditional car ownership, instead relying on car-share schemes, a market for which driverless technology would be perfect.
