WEBINAR: Understanding community desire to interact with CAV
The next in iMOVE’s series of project outcome webinars is taking place on 11 October 2022, and is entitled Understanding the community’s desire to interact with Connected and Automated Vehicles.
Recently completed iMOVE projects, including the Ipswich Connected Vehicle Pilot, and Promoting community readiness and uptake of CAVs, have delivered many useful insights into new technologies expected to enhance safety and efficiency on our roads. This includes connected and automated vehicle technologies, which are maturing and are expected to be rolled out more widely on our roads in the near future.
The need to have effective human-machine interfaces along with general acceptance of these technologies by the community for their successful implementation is clear.
This webinar will look at what we have learnt about people from two recently completed iMOVE supported research projects. This includes general attitudes to the technologies, as well as more specific preferences and behaviours.
- What have we learnt about public understanding and acceptance of CAV technologies?
- What have we learnt about people’s preferences from CAV research in Australia?
- How can we use this knowledge to bring people along for the ride as we introduce new technologies?
- What further research could build on this work and progress understanding, acceptance and implementation of CAV technologies in Australia?
