TAIPEI (Taiwan News)—An online survey, conducted by Gartner, Inc. from April
2017 through May 2017, and polled 1,519 people in the U.S. and Germany, revealed that 55% of respondents will not consider riding in a fully autonomous vehicle, while 71% may consider riding in a partially autonomous vehicle.
Many consumers are cautious about fully autonomous vehicles because they are concerned about technology failures and security, according to the research results.
