People stay skeptical to self-driving capabilities of a vehicle!

People stay skeptical to self-driving capabilities of a vehicle!

A study published today revealed that more than four out of five people would prefer not to ride in fully autonomous vehicles. Almost 50% of the respondents would like to drive in a simple vehicle with no self-driving capabilities, maybe just with partially self-driving or completely self-driving technology, it is what the results of the study from University of Michigan show. Only 6% of the participants at this study would like to drive such a car, while 39% of them prefer partially self-driving cars.




If we'd have to make some comparisons between the young drivers and the older ones, than the first category is more likely to drive the full self-driving cars. Still, not all of the young respondents gave this answer, but only 19% of them, their ages differ from 18 to 29. Partially self-driving cars are more loved by young people from 30 to 44, considering 43% of them said they would prefer partially self-driving cars, compared with 35 percent who said they favor vehicles with no self-driving technology.



Though automakers consider they fully autonomous vehicles are a good solution for reducing traffic accidents, people need more proof of that, that is why they stay skeptical. Only 9.7% of respondents do not have concerns about self-driving capabilities, while the rest of them still have concerns. At this survey participated 618 respondents, which makes it trustworthy, carmakers must think about some solutions now.

  • Fire Risk: BMW Recalls 185,000 Cars TODAY
    19 Apr 2019

    The recall expansion covers 3 Series, 5 Series and Z4 models from the 2006 model year. The problem has been traced to irregularities in the manufacturing process that could allow moisture to occur near the PCV valve heater and lead to a short circuit. The PCV valve is an emissions device that keeps pollutants created by an engine from being released into the atmosphere. It also helps keep the engine oil clean and prevents crankcase pressure from building up. BMW warns its customers to stop driving the vehicle if there is smoke coming from the engine, or if the driver smells smoke or plast...
