ABSTRACT

The central theme of this thesis deals with the role of acceptability in the interaction between a conventional vehicle driven by a human and an automated vehicle. The initial study consists of a meta-analysis summarising the determinants of acceptability of a new technology. The results showed that acceptability was predicated on six factors: behavioural intent, expected performance, expected ease of use, attitude, social influence and sense of control. A second study was carried out to assess the effect of the decision of acceptability on the difference in behaviour exhibited by the driver of a conventional vehicle when interacting with an automated vehicle. The results showed that a low level of acceptability is associated with cautious behaviour towards the automated vehicle. A third study, using a driving simulator, showed that drivers of conventional vehicles with a high level of acceptability behave identically towards an automated vehicle and a conventional vehicle. In conclusion, this thesis discusses how important acceptability of a technological device is when interacting with it.
