Accessibility for Passengers with Mobility Disabilities: Entering and Exiting

Collaboration with Stakeholders

We recently completed a study in Michigan asking persons with disabilities, family members, transportation experts, and AV designers/developers about how to ensure that future AVs are built and operated in accessible ways. One of the main points of agreement was that individuals with disabilities need to be involved at all levels - design, development, testing, and policy making. Greater diversity during these processes will significantly impact the levels of accessibility that autonomous vehicles - both privately owned and publicly operated - have as they are rolled out and operated.
