Public Perception Studies to Date
Some Major Findings • You can call a drone whatever you want without changing people’s support • Purpose matters • Trust matters…
And More Findings • Sensemaking through pop culture, lack of knowledge, questioning, and purpose. • Hopes for societal benefits such as research technology and improved public safety (reduced risk, better forecasting). • Concerns for privacy, public & airspace safety, and pollution. • Recommendations for collaborative regulation creation for safety and security, as well as privacy.
Next Steps • Studies 1&2: Wave 3 ▫ MTurk and representative sample • Study 3 Study 4 ▫ Representative sample survey experiment ▫ Varying: Purpose, actor, rural/urban ▫ Examining: Support, trust ▫ Moderation by: Knowledge
