Around a third of motorists remain uneasy about the prospect of driverless cars, according to a new survey put together by Autoglass. 2,000 UK drivers were questioned as part of the survey. 67% cited safety concerns as their main deterrent for buying a driverless car, with more than half (54%) of drivers noting that they would feel unsafe riding in one. Interestingly, the report _ entitled 'Window to the Future' _ highlighted that the opposite is true for a number of other emerging technologies, with drivers keen to consider new safety features. Some cutting edge safety technology has actually already been integrated into existing vehicles.æ For instance, a number of cars are already on the market with 'smart' windscreens _ windscreens that are likely to evolve into augmented reality vision in the near future, capable of alerting motorists to potential hazards, pedestrians and adverse weather conditions. Technology still isn't shown to be widely renowned, though.æ 50% of the drivers surveyed were unaware of what a head-up display was.æ Interestingly, though, windscreen technology was already recognised as valuable, with 47% of drivers noting their interest in improved night vision and 37% interested in water repellent screens. Just one in five drivers said that they regularly made use of voice control functionality in smart devices, with around a third preferring to operate devices manually instead.æ 27 admitted to doubting the efficacy of voice control. Dr Chris Davies, the head of technical superiority at Autoglass, said: 'The car of the future is, in many respects, already here. We're seeing more sophisticated technologies and features that have started to revolutionise the driving experience. Many of these, such as the head-up displays and eye tracking devices, are already delivering benefits where they are being used by the military and also in some commercial vehicles.î 'Our research reveals that although many drivers have an understanding of what the car of the future will look like, they aren't quite ready to try it out just yet and they still enjoy the physical act of driving. Over one quarter (27%) of people surveyed say that they wouldn't buy a driverless car for that reason, and just one in 10 (or 12%) is excited at the prospect of owning one.î
