On September 9th, PAsCAL participated in the EU Lunchtime Session "Do we trust self-driving cars? Social acceptance of automated mobility" organised for EU staff .
After an overview of Automated transport and CCAM objectives and overall landscape introduced by CINEA, the coordinators of the 4 EU funded projects, Drive2theFuture, PAsCAL, SUAAVE and Trustonomy presented the preliminary results of their projects.
Each from a different perspective, the 4 project focus on peoples' reactions - e.g. drivers, passengers, pedestrians, other drivers... on board and around an autonomous vehicle, trying to identify what factors influence their reactions e.g. education/training, automation level, traffic scenario...and which are the most likely issues to be addressed. A very lively and interesting Q&A session closed the day.
The presentation is available in attachment of this news.
