The field of autonomous vehicles is gaining wide recognition in the industry, academia as well as social media. However, there is a lack of knowledge on expectations of people regarding this topic. To this end, this paper analyses extant research on perceptions of people in various countries about semi-autonomous and autonomous vehicles. Secondly, based on the findings of this analysis, we developed a questionnaire to gauge the perceptions of the people in Sweden regarding such vehicles. The findings have important implications for the design of AVs in Sweden, and possibly other countries.

Keywords: autonomous vehicles, artificial intelligence (AI), ethics, user-centred design
