Autonomous buses are a sustainable and economic way of giving more people access to public transport. Currently many pilot projects have been conducted in Germany in order to examinethe possibilities for further development and application of autonomous buses. The buses operate on fixed short routes with a maximum speed of 20km/h depending on the length and condition of the route.
The investigations focus on customer perception as an important factor for the advancement of the autonomous buses. In the course of my master thesis at the TU Dresden, I am conducting an online study regarding the risk perception of the users of autonomous buses. The aim of the study is the identification and classification of the most important factors that affect the risk perception of the passengers. The survey takes 15 minutes to complete.
