DETROIT, May 23 (Reuters) - U.S. consumers still resist the notion of self-driving cars, according to a University of Michigan study
released on Monday, the latest sign that investors and
automakers may be rushing into a business where demand
is limited at best.

General Motors Co's recent acquisition of Silicon Valley startup Cruise Automation for a reported $1 billion has
accelerated a stampede by other automakers, suppliers and venture capital firms looking to invest in or acquire new companies developing
self-driving technology.

Consumers, meanwhile, remain concerned about aspects of self-driving technology and "overwhelmingly" still want the ability to manually control a
self-driving vehicle, the study said.
"The most frequent preference for vehicle automation continues to be for no self-driving capability,"
said the study's authors, Brandon Schoettle
and Michael Sivak.
The survey results are consistent with those in a similar
survey that the university conducted a year ago and generally mirror the findings in a study that the American Automobile
Association released in March. The AAA report found that three out of four respondents were "afraid" to ride in a self-driving
car.

The latest University of Michigan survey found 46 percent of respondents
preferred no self-driving, followed by partial self-driving (39
percent) and complete self-driving (15 percent).

Nearly 95 percent of respondents said they wanted to have a
steering wheel plus gas and brake pedals so they could take control of
a self-driving vehicle when desired, the study found.


Traditional automakers and suppliers have embarked on a
gradual phase-in of self-driving technologies, from automatically regulating
speed and braking to keeping the vehicle from drifting out of its traffic lane.

Electric car maker Tesla Motors Inc has gone a step further with its Autopilot system, which gives owners the option of limited self-driving on the highway.


Technology companies led by Alphabet Inc's Google favor an "all-in" approach,
with its latest prototypes designed to drive automatically
without steering wheel or pedals. (Reporting by Paul Lienert in Detroit; Editing by Lisa Von Ahn)
