Most Canadians trust autonomous technology

A new survey has found around half of Canadian customers trust autonomous vehicles to get them to where they need to go. However, only 30 per cent say they would trade their current vehicle for a driverless car.

The DesRosiers Automotive Consultants study shows that young people are the most receptive of autonomous technology, which may not be a surprising conclusion. Driverless vehicles are also embraced more by respondents with higher income and education levels.

DesRosiers also split its findings by provinces. The firm found Quebec residents are the most trustworthy (56.8 per cent) of the ability for autonomous technology to deliver them to their destination. Ontarians (51 per cent) are also mostly trusting of the driverless tech, as are the Atlantic provinces (50.1 per cent).

Elsewhere, the majority swung to people not trusting autonomous tech, Manitoba and Saskatchewan (45.1 per cent), Alberta (45.9 per cent) and British Columbia (46.1 per cent).
