Getting Ready for Autonomous Vehicles: Understanding Consumers’ Perceptions, Intended Adoption, and Impacts on Future Travel Behavior

My doctoral research at the University of South Florida involved the marriage of my interests in emerging transportation technologies, econometrics, and travel behavior to contribute my two cents on preparing for a world with autonomous vehicles. Here, I am mostly interested in understanding the factors that influence public perception, and the adoption of autonomous vehicles. A later part of the research was devoted to understanding potential travel behavioral impacts from the use of autonomous vehicles – specifically with household vehicle ownership, and residential relocation aspects.
