Study on employment and social impacts of connected and automated driving (CAD) finishedNews postEcorys together with TRT, M-Five, VTT, SEURECO, ERTICO, UITP and IRU analysed the employment and social impacts of connected and automated driving (CAD). The 16 month study was finalised end of last year and has now been published. The study was implemented for the Directorate-General for Research and Innovation (DG RTD) of the European Commission. It provides an analysis of the short, medium- and long-term impacts of CAD on jobs, employment, skills and knowledge, as well as an investigation…
Ambivalence in stakeholders’ views on CAVsNews postPAsCAL's preliminary research into CAV's acceptance investigates vision and worst-case scenarios held by representatives of stakeholder groups that will be shaping how CAVs are introduced: representatives of Public Administrations, automotive original equipment manufacturers, insurance companies, public transportation service providers, mobility experts and politicians.
The results are conveyed in "Ambivalence in stakeholders’ views on connected and autonomous vehicles“ by Celina Kacperski, …

TRIMIS - The reluctance of women to use driverless vehiclesNews postConsumer perceptions of driverless vehicle technology have lagged their development. Studies examined how age and gender might affect a consumer’s willingness to ride in driverless vehicles. They found that gender had a strong effect with perceptions and emotions of women such as happiness, fear and anger as key influencers. Designers of driverless vehicles should consider such issues to develop a driverless transport future.
In the last few years, there has been an increase in automated,…
RAI 1 - Easy DriverNews postThe mobility infrastructure of the future will have to deal and interact with a new kind of transportation solution on our roads: the connected autonomous vehicle (CAV). What was once considered to be science fiction - a vehicle capable of driving itself, with no need for a human driver at the wheel - is now a reality. At present, the technology is only in the testing phase. However, the impact of its development on everyone's daily travel experience cannot be ignored.
PAsCAL has been…
Behavioural analysis for a new “ecosystem”News postUMA starts its studies to promote “informed” acceptance of autonomous driving and to guide decision-makers’ choices.
The European project PAsCAL is in full swing. As scheduled, accurate analysis is being carried out to understand the actual level of knowledge and acceptance of autonomous driving among European citizens. Indeed, fostering the deployment of autonomous and connected mobility solutions, by ‘attracting’ potential users to new technologies, is among the main goals of the project (…
Information is the future of mobilityNews postThere are still many questions to be answered regarding driverless cars, starting from public perception, which is currently split between confidence and concern.
Among the many technological revolutions occurred during the last century, some of the most important ones regarded the transport sector. In particular, the last 50-60 years opened new and never imagined opportunities, including space travels. As for the ordinary daily life, the general availability of cars as means of transport has…
