Abstract/Description of Original Work

Day by day, automated vehicles are becoming complex whether that is their connection to different networks, to the internet of things, or simply in security and safety for users. The more intricate automation becomes, the more safety needs to mature. There is safety in the software of systems however the bigger concern lies in ensuring the safety of the drivers and passengers. Whether a person is a contributor to the automation industry or a user of automated products and services, it is important to ask some critical questions. Does the industry have enough knowledge or has there been enough research and experimentation done to allow such a complex system to make decisions whether that is as simple as heating the car for a few minutes before going in or something big as changing lanes on a highway where cars are speeding? The purpose of this paper is to explore the different ways in which people can trust such systems and for those who can begin to start trusting.
