TECHNOLOGY ACCEPTANCE MODEL: RECENT DEVELOPMENTS, FUTURE DIRECTIONS, AND PROPOSAL FOR HYPOTHETICAL EXTENSIONS
by Elizabeth Matemba, Liguoxin Li, Ives Chacourre Wangninanon Gogan, Baraka Maiseli Abstract: Proliferation of sophisticated technologies has uncovered potential research avenues to understand factors for acceptance or rejection of these technologies. For decades, the technology acceptance model (TAM) has remained popular and robust to establish predictors of adoption and use of the technologies. Motivated by the advantages, our goals in the current work are threefold: one, to extensively review recent developments and trends of TAM; two, to identify possible future research directions of TAM; and, three, to give our perspectives on how TAM may be extended to improve its predictive power. Therefore, using the concept-centric approach, 166 studies were recognized and categorized into reviews, extensions, and applications based on their contents and aims. Moreover, we have hypothesized that health status and financial constraints of consumers may moderate the relationship strengths among TAM constructs. Our contributions may assist developers harness the legacy of TAM to enhance their products and services. Keywords: Technology acceptance model; literature review; TAM; perceived usefulness; perceived ease of use.
Role of RFID Technologies in Transportation Projects: A Review by Deepak Sharma Abstract: Advancement in sensing and transmitting technologies has significantly reduced their cost and increased their use in various industries, including the architectural, engineering, and construction industry. These advancements in sensor and systemisation technologies are revolutionising the information generation process in the industries they are applied. Radio Frequency Identification (RFID) is one such wireless transmission technology that enables sensing, counting, measuring, documenting, identifying, locating, and transmitting information in real-time. These features can help managers to manage projects more effectively. However, there exists a significant gap between RFID technologies current acceptance versus the expected acceptance in the transportation industry. This paper presents the findings from an extensive literature review, aimed to investigate the application of RFID systems to various phases of transportation projects. This research enabled identifying the advantages and barriers to RFID adoption. Lastly, action-items are recommended for transportation agencies that will help them in adopting RFID systems in the transportation industry Keywords: automation; construction; internet of things; maintenance; operations; radio frequency identification; RFID; sensor; tracking technology; traffic; transportation.
