MUNICH, November 7, 2016 /PRNewswire/ --
The majority of Chinese consumers hope that someday they will have a robotic car that can take the wheel and autonomously drive them to their destination. In a global comparison, the Chinese are the biggest fans of autonomous smart cars with an approval rating of 89 percent. By contrast, consumers in major car-making nations like the USA (62 percent), Japan (56 percent) and Germany (47 percent) are much more reserved when it comes to autonomous driving. Those were the results of the electronica Trend Index 2020, a survey of 7,000 consumers in 7 countries around the world conducted on behalf of the international trade fair electronica.
When it comes to high-tech visions of connected cars in the future, Chinese consumers tend to be more open-minded than those in other countries. 71 percent of the Chinese people asked, feel it is important for smart cars to intervene like a driving instructor when the driver makes a mistake. In the United States, only 47 percent of those surveyed would want that kind of electronic driving instructor, and just 35 percent in Germany. Compared to their Chinese neighbors, not even half as many Japanese consumers (28 percent) said they would welcome such a development.
"At the international electronics exhibition electronica from November 8-11 in Munich, the global electronics community will exchange information about the future of the networked world, and more than 2,900 exhibitors will present innovations," says Senger.
