#1. Safer Than the Average Human Driver (Who is Less Safe than Me)? Examining a Popular Safety Benchmark for Self-Driving Cars
Michael Nees
Although the level of safety required before drivers will accept self-driving cars is not clear, the criterion of being safer than a human driver has become pervasive in the discourse on vehicle automation. This criterion actually means “safer than the average human driver,” because it is necessarily defined with respect to population-level data. At the level of individual risk assessment, a body of research has shown that most drivers perceive themselves to be safer than the average driver (the better-than-average effect). Using an online sample of U.S. drivers, this study replicated the better than average effect and showed that most drivers stated a desire for self-driving cars that are safer than their own perceived ability to drive safely before they would: (1) feel reasonably safe riding in a self-driving vehicle; (2) buy a self-driving vehicle, all other things (cost, etc.) being equal; and (3) allow self-driving vehicles on public roads. Since most drivers believe they are better than average drivers, the benchmark of...

Assert is a website where the best academic papers on arXiv (computer science, math, physics), bioRxiv (biology), BITSS (reproducibility), EarthArXiv (earth science), engrXiv (engineering), LawArXiv (law), PsyArXiv (psychology), SocArXiv (social science), and SportRxiv (sport research) bubble to the top each day.

Papers are scored (in real-time) based on how verifiable they are (as determined by their Github repos) and how interesting they are (based on Twitter).
