Synopsis

The University of Florida’s Institute for Mobility, Activity and Participation is working in collaboration with the University of Alabama at Birmingham and the City of Gainesville to study the implications of integrating autonomous vehicle technology. Phase 1 of the autonomous vehicle research will focus on the perception, values, beliefs and attitudes of drivers 65 years or older while utilizing a driving simulator and an autonomous vehicle.
