Underserved communities do not have the same level of access to transportation, including those with visual impairments. This can lead to a loss in opportunities for healthcare, education, and employment. This discussion is led by Assistant Professor, Robin Brewer, and Karl E. Weick Collegiate Professor of Information, Nicole Ellison. Professors Brewer and Ellison will be discussing their recently completed project titled, "Supporting People with Vision Impairments in Autonomous Vehicles". They will focus on the perceived barriers and design solutions of autonomous vehicles from the perspective of blind and low vision people. They will also examine the broader transportation ecosystem and how ridesharing services, a proxy to understanding AV use, are experienced by people with vision impairments. This free webinar will include a Q&A session.
