Acceptance of new technology and systems by drivers is an important area of concern to governments, automotive manufacturers and equipment suppliers, especially technology that has significant potential to enhance safety. To be acceptable, new technology must be useful and satisfying to use. If not, drivers will not want to have it, in which case it will never achieve the intended safety benefit. Even if they have the technology, drivers may not use it if it is deemed unacceptable, or may not use it in the manner intended by the designer. At worst, they may seek to disable it. This book brings into a single edited volume the accumulating body of thinking and research on driver and operator acceptance of new technology. Bringing together contributions from international experts from around the world, the editors have shaped a book that covers the theory behind acceptance, how it can be measured and how it can be improved. Case studies are presented that provide data on driver acceptance of a wide range of new and emerging vehicle technology. Although driver acceptance is the central focus of this book, acceptance of new technology by operators in other domains, and across cultures, is also investigated. Similarly, perspectives are derived from domains such as human computer interaction, where user acceptance has long been regarded as a key driver of product success. This book comes at a critical time in the history of the modern motor vehicle, as the number of new technologies entering the modern vehicle cockpit rapidly escalates. The goal of this book is to inspire further research and development of new vehicle technology to optimise user acceptance of it; and, in doing so, to maximise its potential to be useful, satisfying to use and able to save human life.

This comprehensive 2nd edition covers the key issues that relate human behavior to traffic safety. In particular it covers the increasing roles that pedestrians and cyclists have in the traffic system; the role of infotainment in driver distraction; and the increasing role of driver assistance systems in changing the driver-vehicle interaction.

User Experience Design in the Era of Automated Driving

This book is dedicated to user experience design for automated driving to address humane aspects of automated driving, e.g., workload, safety, trust, ethics, and acceptance. Automated driving has experienced a major development boost in recent years. However, most of the research and implementation has been technology-driven, rather than human-centered. The levels of automated driving have been poorly defined and inconsistently used. A variety of application scenarios and restrictions has been ambiguous. Also, it deals with human factors, design practices and methods, as well as applications, such as multimodal infotainment, virtual reality, augmented reality, and interactions in and outside users. This book aims at 1) providing engineers, designers, and practitioners with a broad overview of the state-of-the-art user experience research in automated driving to speed-up the implementation of automated vehicles and 2) helping researchers and students benefit from various perspectives and approaches to generate new research ideas and conduct more integrated research.

Objective - Innovative and advanced driver assistance systems are increasingly being implemented into vehicles in recent years. User acceptance to such technologies is complex in nature, as it depends primarily on the degree of innovation, as well as the different characteristics and behaviour of the adopters. Thus, it is essential to understand the concept of technology acceptance as it can assist in setting up priorities during the initial stages of product development and policy making. Methodology/Technique - This paper presents a review of empirical research on technology acceptance with regards to driver assistance systems referred from 17 published studies. In addition to evaluating various behavioural science theories and models such as Technology Acceptance Model (TAM), other proposed variables that influence acceptance and usage of such technologies, potential limitations and gaps have also been analysed and evaluated. Multiple electronic databases have been thoroughly searched for relevant empirical studies based on specified criteria and defined keywords. Findings - The results indicate that TAM indeed is a very useful model and mostly used; however to better understand the user acceptance toward driver assistance systems, additional factors need to be included in order to complement the existing constructs in TAM. Novelty - In term of studied location, majority of the empirical studies only concern USA and European populations. Asian populations, especially in the Southeast Asian region, which account for quite a number of vehicle users in the world, are underrepresented. Type of Paper: Review.

Telematics in the automotive industry are the most popular example of Connected Services. But despite their implementation in several million of vehicles worldwide, there has only been little consideration in research. Clemens Hiraoka analyzes the entire customer lifecycle from awareness, acceptance, and usage to the renewal of the service contract and uncovers the drivers in each of these stages. His evaluation gives a series of new implications for management and research.
