Automated Driving in the Smart City

On behalf of the Association of German Engineers (VDI), the Institute for Innovation and Technology (iit) conducted a study on automated driving in the smart city. The aim of the study was to classify and evaluate the current public opinion on automated driving based on scientific findings. A central finding of the study is that the benefits and potentials of automated driving are often assessed much more pessimistically by the population than in science and research. The data for the opinion barometer is based on a representative survey of 1,004 citizens on the topic of "Automated Driving in the Smart City". The survey was conducted by forsa Politik- und Sozialforschung GmbH on behalf of the Institute for Innovation and Technology (iit) between 17 and 22 October 2019.
