The concept of Acceptance

Adell, Emeli LU (2007) 20th ICTCT Workshop In [Host publication title missing]
Abstract
Over the recent years there has been a large development of various driver support systems with the intention to improve traffic safety. For these systems to be successful in reducing fatalities and trauma it is decisive that they are used by the drivers. Hence, the driver’s acceptance of the systems is vital. How acceptance can be measured depends on how it is defined. Unfortunately, there is no prevailing definition which has resulted in a number of different measurement methods, often with disparate outcomes.



This paper discusses the definition of acceptance and how acceptance is measured. The Unified Theory of Acceptance and Use of Technology (UTAUT) (Venkatesh et al, 2003), used in the area of information... (More)

This paper discusses the definition of acceptance and how acceptance is measured. The Unified Theory of Acceptance and Use of Technology (UTAUT) (Venkatesh et al, 2003), used in the area of information technology, is analysed and put forward as a promising alternative to study the acceptance of driver support systems.
