Would self-driving vehicles increase occupant productivity?

Currently, in the U.S., the average occupant of a light-duty vehicle spends about an hour a day traveling - time that could potentially be put to more productive use. Indeed, increased productivity is one of the expected benefits of self-driving vehicles. The data presented in this white paper indicate that for about 62% of Americans, self-driving vehicles currently are not likely to result in an improvement in productivity. This is the case because 23% indicated they would not ride in such vehicles, and 36% would be so apprehensive in such vehicles that they would only watch the road. Furthermore, out of the remaining 41%, around 8% would frequently experience some level of motion sickness - for an additional 3% of occupants.
