Fully autonomous vehicles are still a few years away from hitting the roads, but we already know what we’ll be doing once the technology will become available.
Questioning motorists in the United Kingdom on their future activities inside driverless cars, WhatCar came up with a few interesting answers.
The survey reveals that 26 percent, or nearly one out of three, would feel comfortable enough to be driven around autonomously while taking a nap.
High on the list of preferred activities while the car will drive itself includes chatting to passengers, watching TV and browsing the web. Out of the people questioned, 32 percent admitted that highway journeys would be more pleasant with a self-driving vehicle and 18 percent said that they would prefer to hand over control of their vehicle in a traffic jam.
At the opposite end, 51 percent stated that they would feel “unsafe” or “very unsafe” behind the wheel of a car that drives itself, while 45 percent found the idea “very unappealing“. The biggest concern when it comes to fully autonomous cars remains their ability to predict and avoid an accident, while 30 percent are afraid about “losing the enjoyment of driving“.
