Panel 3: Inclusive Design: Vehicle Technologies that Increase Access

Affordability of Accessible Automated Vehicles

All of the technology solutions being studied sound amazing and the future is exciting. However, none of this will matter if people cannot afford the accessible solutions being marketed. Accessible vehicle are already very expensive and cost prohibitive for many with few funding options available. I would like to know how those creating the automated vehicles with accessibility features are also working to bring costs down so those with disabilities can actually afford to buy them.
