The Cadillac Super Cruise and Google self-driving Prius have created serious buzz over the past year or so, but it seems as though the public still isn't completely ready to take their hands off the wheel. J.D. Power and Associates recently conducted a pole and found that only 20 percent of car owners say they "definitely would" or "probably would" buy self-driving technology in their next vehicle.
"Consumers are still learning about how autonomous driving technology could be used in their vehicles," said Mike VanNieuwkuyk, executive director of global automotive at J.D. Power and Associates. "Many owners are skeptical about releasing control of their vehicle and would like to see the technology proved before they adopt it."
Until people are able to test out this technology for themselves, we don't see the self-driving car finding full acceptance any time soon.
