  • Description:
    The Independent Locking Securement System Project (ILS System Project) is a

    successful attempt to respond to the transportation community's need for a

    "universal" securement/restraint system that will accommodate most wheeled

    mobility aids, including three-wheeled scooters, in common use on public

    transportation systems. The research project was designed to assist transit

    agencies as well as manufacturers in providing access on public transit vehicles

    to persons with disabilities and to meet the requirements of the Americans with

    Disabilities Act (ADA). The project focused on mobility aid securement problem

    analysis, design and construction of several securement system prototypes, and

    extensive testing of both the operational and engineering aspects of the

    securement system.

    The primary objective of the ILS System Project was to design, build and test a

    wheeled mobility aid securement system that would operate with all mobility aids

    in "common use" on fixed route transit vehicles. The major requirements for the

    system were to: maximize mobility aid user independence, minimize transit

    vehicle operator involvement, minimize securement and release time, and satisfy

    all the proposed securement standards and guidelines.
