Nothing to fear? How humans (and other intelligent animals) might ruin the autonomous vehicle utopia

How will people respond once they realise they can rely on autonomous vehicles to stop whenever someone steps out in front of them? Human behaviour might stand in the way of the promised 'autopia'.

Helmet churn adds to challenges of e-scooter disruption

Every day, e-scooters and helmets are put out together, but some people ride without helmets and at the end of each day helmets are missing. So what can be done to ensure safe riding behaviour?
Whatever’s driving the popularity of SUVs like the Toyota Kluger, crash tests and accident data show people are mistaken if they think they increase safety on the road. Toyota/AAP

I’ve always wondered: are SUVs and 4WDs safer than other cars?

Perceptions about safety might be one of the reasons more and more people are buying SUVs. The evidence from crash data, though, is troubling – particularly for other road users.

Autonomous cars need to learn how to drive just like people do: with real-world practice on public roads. It's key to safety, and to public confidence in the new technologies.

We asked people if they would trust driverless cars

Do people really trust driverless cars to carry them safely to their destinations? New research shows that we are ready to use driverless cars in certain situations but not others, yet.

Self-driving cars and humans face inevitable collisions

Humans and machines perceive the world differently and respond in different ways to what they perceive. This lays the groundwork for conflict – and crashes.
