MetadataShow full item record
Because of growing body of researches that predict the autonomous vehicles to be the future mode of transport. It is important to investigate the preference of Autonomous vehicles among Qatari citizens for fast developing country such as Qatar. Stated Preference survey is distributed to 315 individuals living across Qatar. Based on the participants characteristics, the drivers are exposed to different scenarios and asked to choose one of the presented four modes of transport (Normal car, Private own autonomous vehicles, Shared autonomous vehicles, Public transport).The characteristics of each respondent have an impact on the preferences and attitude toward autonomous vehicles AVs and this was quantified through multinomial logit model. Currently, the key observations were as following: ? There is substantial hesitation toward adoption of AVs in Qatar, with 52% of choice decision that supports normal cars. ? Comfortable scale is an important factor in Qatar because good comfortable scale will increase the utility to use such mode of transport. ? Public transport is considered the least preferred mode of transport in Qatar especially if the individual owns a private car. In other word, people in Qatar give less utility value for SAV and public transport. Educating the young generation about the benefits of using AVs and public transport will enhance their background regarding the advanced modes of transport and encourage them to use conventional car alternatives in the future.
