Many hesitant to self-propelled vehicles – P4 Göteborg


The Gothenburg Logistics and Transport trade fair presented a Novus survey on Monday showing how Swedes are looking at self-driving cars.

Just over 1000 people have been interviewed and just over half (52 percent) think it's unsafe with self-propelled cars and vehicles. A total of 8 out of 10 people think technology needs to be tested a few more years. Only 21 percent think it feels safe with self-propelled vehicles today.

"Many are doubtful and that is all right. There is a lot of development left before we can rely on the vehicles fully, says chalmers researcher Fredrik von Corswant.
