Autonomous cars will undoubtedly change the way people live, but they could also make for a queasy future, a study by the University of Michigan has found. The U-M Transportation Research Institute ran a survey of more than 3200 people - across the US, India, China, Japan, Great Britain and Australia - which aimed to see what people would do while they were in an autonomous car. Researchers Michael Sivak and Brandon Schoettle found that many respondents would read, watch movies or television, play games, work or use their phones to text people - and these actions would "increase the likelihood and severity of motion sickness". Sivak and Schoettle found more than one third of US respondents, more than half of the Indian contingent, 40 per cent of Chinese respondents and between 26 and 30 per cent of those asked in Japan, Great Britain and Australia were likely to perform these actions.
