Self-Driving Cars or Autonomous Vehicles being
a relatively recent phenomenon, there has been quite a lot of research that has
focused on mostly examining the technical aspects of autonomous vehicles and
the impact it may have on reducing the problems caused by the exponential
increase in usage of regular passenger cars in the past three decades. However,
little or no research as such exists on the potential behavioral shifts and the
underlying motivations to use these self-driving cars. These below mentioned studies
focused on getting common man opinions to determine significant factors that
influence the decision to purchase and use self-driving cars.
