Panel 3: Inclusive Design: Vehicle Technologies that Increase Access

This Panel will highlight opportunities and needs in the design of vehicles – both conventional and emerging automated vehicle concepts – to expand mobility access and availability to individuals with disabilities. It will focus on the needs of people with disabilities in terms of vehicle design and engineering, work within the automotive and technology industries to meet these needs (particularly through emerging automated vehicle designs), and DOT initiatives to identify needs, gaps, best practices, opportunities, and standards.
