In June 2018, BRAVE (H2020 R&I funded-project) partners in France and Slovenia have conducted similar trials of automated driving on open roads. The underlying idea of the tests is to analyze the feelings of the participants towards automated driving features, before and after using the technology. The study is based on the Van der Laan scale, as well as the SHAPE Automation Trust Index (SATI), to assess the levels of acceptance and trust in the system. Those tests have already been replicated in Sweden, France, and Slovenia. During the coming months, similar test sessions will be organized in Spain and Germany as...
