Disability and Rehabilitation Research Projects (DRRP) Program: Accessible Transportation: The purpose of this funding is (a) to advance the application of automation and robotics to enhance accessible transportation for travelers with disabilities and (b) to improve opportunities for a seamless travel chain that meets the diverse needs of travelers with mobility, vision, hearing and cognitive disabilities and provides them the ability to plan and execute an on-demand trip anytime of the day and from any location. To do this, the grantee will engage in development of operations procedures, system requirements, and prototypes and will conduct demonstrations for target groups and stakeholders. One of the outcomes of this work will be the identification of assistive technology solutions in automation and robotics that enhance and improve transportation alternatives for people with disabilities, veterans with disabilities, and older adults. Products should emphasize principles of universal design and inclusive information and communication technology (ICT).
