Contribute | Ask | Learn | Experience: Self-Driving Vehicles & Older Adults

Tue, Feb 19, 2019, 6:00 PM (PST)


Transportation advances can transform independence and dignity for older adults. In addition to an array of other new ideas, one compelling offering that we’re tracking is the emerging category of self-driving vehicles. May Mobility is leading an exciting new sub-category – self-driving shuttles – which offers a unique way to create a social transportation option. The company is committed to an inclusive user-centered design process that imagines an intergenerational riding community. At this Aging2.0 Alameda Chapter Event hosted in nearby Berkeley, CA, May Mobility’s Zafar Razzacki and Ben Thompson will describe May’s recent work in Ohio and will invite participants to provide direct input into the future design choices for the vehicle.

Goals for the event:

o Learn about the current state of self-driving vehicles and the specific category of self-driving shuttles

o Explore what inclusive user centered design means with respect to older adults and people with disabilities.

o To share experiences about research with older adults

o To explore through creative practice our own feelings about the future of transportation
