U.S. Department Of Transportation Inclusive Design Challenge


On April 21, 2020, the U.S. Department of Transportation Secretary Elaine L. Chao announced the opening of Stage I of the Inclusive Design Challenge (Challenge). The Challenge seeks innovative design solutions that can enable people with physical, sensory, and cognitive disabilities to use automated vehicles to access jobs, healthcare, and other critical destinations. The Challenge is a part of a larger set of departmental initiatives on accessibility, announced at the Access and Mobility for All Summit.

Individuals with disabilities who might be willing to have a short Zoom or phone interview (15-30 min) about how their disability affects vehicle use and community access are encouraged to contact Gunnar Olson at 507-720-2887 or email gunnar.olson@coyotes.usd.eduInterviews must be completed by the end of September. All personal information will be kept private.
