Autonomous vehicles are a promising technological step in improving transportation options for all persons, including seniors and persons with disabilities. However, as this technology develops there is a need to identify and address potential barriers to accessibility of vehicles, including accommodations for mobility devices, interfaces with passengers, and other measures needed for passenger assistance. This session will provide presentations of research in accessibility of autonomous vehicles in both public transit and general transportation applications, including focus group research, testing of vehicles, and evaluation of service.
