Bicyclists' attitudes and perceptions towards self-driving cars: A mixed methods approach

E. Hollauf, C. Luger-Bazinger, V. Hornung-PrähauserConference room

  1. As vulnerable road users, the expectations and needs of bicyclists must be considered when developing autonomous vehicles.
  2. We followed a mixed methods approach (survey N=889; focus groups N=19) to gain insights into perceptions and attitudes of bicyclists.
  3. Perceived safety and trust are essential factors in the acceptance of AVs, as affinity for technology, gender and age are significant predictors of those factors.
  4. Using external human-machine interfaces to facilitate communication between bicyclists and AVs is a promising approach.
