  • Examining factors influencing consumer acceptance towards autonomous vehicle in Malaysia   Order a copy of this article
    by Naviin Thayalan, Shaizatulaqma Kamalul Ariffin 
    Abstract: The purpose of this study is to examine the relationship between factors (perceived usefulness, perceived ease of use, social influence, perceived safety, price sensitivity) influencing consumer acceptance towards autonomous vehicle in Malaysia. The moderating role of technology anxiety in the relationship between the above factors and the intention to adopt autonomous vehicle is also examined. A total of 231 respondents residing in Malaysia participated in an online survey. Data analysis and hypotheses testing were performed using Statistical Package for the Social Sciences and partial least square structural equation modelling. The findings confirms that the perceived usefulness, perceived ease of use, perceived safety, and social influence have significant and positive influence on the intention to adopt autonomous vehicle, whilst price sensitivity was found to be insignificant. Moderating role of technology anxiety does not strengthen nor weaken the relationship between the researched independent variables and intention to adopt autonomous vehicle.

    by Aryo Dewanto, A.K. Siti-Nabiha 
    Abstract: This study aims to examine Indonesias pandemic situation, the government responses, and its impact on hospital management. The data were obtained from a documentary review and a survey of 30 hospital directors. Efforts to prevent new cases by limiting peoples mobility were not successful, due to the governments lack of clear policies and the trade-off between health and economic priorities, among other reasons. The rapid spread of COVID-19 have impacted hospitals in particular, as the pandemic occurred at a time that most hospitals were encountering challenges due to the implementation of national health insurance. The hospitals in this study have faced challenges to maintain or achieve their expected quality. Moreover, the hospitals bear the risk from the potential collapse of national health insurance and the pandemics direct impacts. These conditions further pressure hositals financial and human resources and threaten the hospitals service quality and sustainability.
