The SHOW project (SHared automation Operating models for Worldwide adoption) has launched a survey to gain a deeper understanding of citizens’ needs, wants and acceptance of transportation solutions today and in the future, when automated solutions will be a part of the overall mobility system.

User demand and user acceptance are critical success factors for the market uptake of AV (Automated Vehicle) solutions. Technology is a mean, not a goal… By involving both end-users and stakeholders in the development process, we aim to ensure that SHOW services meet their needs and requirements and to increase the positive impacts on society.

Therefore, beyond working on technology development, the SHOW partners want to answer the following questions: What are the benefits for the end-users? And what are the benefits for society?

SHOW conducts user acceptance surveys in all pilots, in four iterations. Before the start of the demos, a baseline measurement takes place, followed by three on-site measurements at the beginning, near the middle and at the end of the pilot activities.

Anyone who wishes to share their thoughts on automated mobility is warmly invited to participate in the pre-acceptance surveys. Click here to access the Pre-Acceptance-Survey (available in several languages)!
