This session aims at offering an appraisal of a timely research conducted within the Cost Action “Wider Impacts and Scenario Evaluation of Autonomous and Connected Transport” (Wise-Act) a group of 150 experts from 41 worldwide countries. Relevant surveys concerning Autonomous Vehicles (AV) recently conducted in several neighboring Countries will be presented, along with information about AV existing trials and insights on their social and economic effects.

Key issues presented by speakers will include AV data processing, business challenges and opportunities, ethical and labour implications, policy and regulatory requirements.

The session combines speakers presentation and a constant interaction with participants. Each presenter will give a short introduction on her/his topic, ending with direct questions, such as “Would you give up your car to travel on a ride-sharing AV?” “What is the most important dis/advantage of using an AV for you?” “Who would you share your AV data with?”.

The audience will vote in real time, results will be compared with those of previous surveys and then discussed.

This event is proposed by the Cost Action 16222 “Wise-Act” ( and supported by the University of Udine.
