Autonomous Mobility for Seniors and Disabled Travelers

IXR Mobility and Navya is in the process of Deploying a 12 passenger Autonomous Para-transit Shuttle pilot project in Detroit Michigan that would pick up seniors and the disabled for medical appointments who reside in the 15 senior living housing buildings within a 3 mile radius of the DMC Detroit Medical Center 7 hospital complex including the John D. Dingell Veterans Administration Hospital. This will be a 3 month pilot project from a grant. We believe that this pilot would help educate the general population on Autonomous Electrification Transportation as well as to help build trust in AV technologies. Exploring an opportunity in this project of Autonomous Mobility Inclusion to improve mobility options for disabled travelers.
