Abstract:The next generation Intelligent Transportation Systems (ITS) are based on vehicle to vehicle/infrastructure communications. The success of these systems heavily depends on the acceptance of the end‐users: the drivers. The acceptance of some applications has been investigated by means of a web‐based survey that got 460 responses of Dutch drivers. Three types of applications have been investigated in this research: driving environment information applications, driver comfort applications and services applications. Driving environment applications are applications in which de driver is provided with information on his/her driving environment (E.g. weather, traffic condition). Driver comfort applications are applications that relieve the driver of one or more driving tasks (e.g. platooning).Services applications are applications that provide the driver with entertainment, information and reservation services (e.g. internet). The results show that 62 percent of the drivers accept the driving environment information applications, 67 percent of the drivers accept the driver comfort applications and the acceptance of the services depends on the risk that it has for the driver. The applications are more accepted when drivers feel in charge of the vehicle and are less distracted by the applications.
