    Abstract

    The main aim of this study was to investigate the opinions of Finnish car drivers and experts of traffic safety and automated driving on uptake and acceptance of automated vehicles in Finland. The opinions were collected by on line surveys. Altogether 1 154 drivers participated the survey. The sample represented Finnish drivers well. Finnish drivers are quite familiar with the self driving vehicles, at
    least in some level. The general opinion on self driving vehicles varies quite a lot. Both drivers and experts are expecting benefit s from the automation in the future, but they also have quite a few concerns. Traffic safety benefits are expected by the experts, but not in the near future yet. The drivers find it somewhat hard to estimate how their own safety would change if changing t o the self driving vehicle.
