AV User Acceptance 

According to research, the acceptance rate of autonomous vehicles depends on various factors such as usefulness, reliability and so on. One way to determine public acceptance is through surveys. The general acceptance rate of semi-autonomous vehicles depends on safety, easy driving and user comfort and driving training. In the case of fully autonomous vehicles, the acceptance rate of fully autonomous vehicles is affected by safety, user comfort and additional costs.
