Full Description:

Federal and state agencies, in conjunction with private industry, are working to develop and implement connected vehicle technologies. As envisioned, these technologies will enable vehicles to communicate with each other and the roadway for the purpose of achieving safety, mobility, and environmental improvements within the vehicle-based transportation system. While connected vehicle technologies have great promise, public acceptance of the technology will be required to gain support for the investments needed to deploy such systems successfully. CAR researchers reviewed literature relevant to public perceptions of connected vehicle systems and conducted three focus groups with drivers unfamiliar with the technology. This report presents an overview of the key concerns relating to public perceptions of connected vehicles uncovered in the focus groups, the literature, or both.
