This paper reported findings of a nationwide survey to evaluate public opinion and preferences regarding the adoption of emerging vehicle and transport technologies. In June 2015, researchers at the University of Texas and an independent survey firm distributed a web-based survey to 2,868 Americans to assess their awareness, perception, and interest in automated vehicle (AV) technologies. A total of 2,167 responses were collected for analysis. Responses were generally over-represented by Texans (1,364 Texans) and females with bachelor’s degrees, and under-represented by other demographics such as men who did not complete high school and males 18 to 21 years old.
The distribution of respondents was geocoded into a map of the United States as shown below.
