Autonomous Cars as Public Technology: Aspects and Approaches for the Social Acceptance and the Co-production
Summary:
Automation has been integrated technologically, organizationally and socially in the public transport regimes. Road public transport has already initiated the introduction of automated vehicles, with several examples throughout Europe. The automated vehicles have been emerged as niche innovations to claim their position in the incumbent transport regimes. Their integration has been based on visions and expectations created by experts and stakeholders while depends on public perceptions about the technological future, urban mobility, as well as the mobility of specific social relevant groups. The aim of this thesis is to study the technology of autonomous cars as public technology and thus to provide a study and the evaluation of the public and experts’ perceptions in relation to the technology and its integration in the transport system.
