A key issue with the widespread adoption of any autonomous technology is trust. How do users, by-standers, and fellow travelers know that they can trust an autonomous vehicle to behave in a predictable, logical manner? This session addresses the key technological and psychological challenges associated with the broader questions of widespread adoptions of autonomous systems.
