  • Abstract:
    In coordination with Easter Seals Project ACTION (ESPA) and with support from Noblis, ATTRI held an online dialogue from May 15-June 6, 2014 to garner input on

    mobility and transportation technology for travelers with disabilities. Participants were asked to consider both new technology or post ideas about ways to improve existing

    transportation technology. Through the online dialogue, ATTRI received input on the subject of accessible transportation technology, with a thoughtful discussion of the

    benefits and challenges of the different technology solutions. Examples of technology discussed by dialogue participants include mobile applications for navigation and

    wayfinding, use of smart devices to provide traveler assistance for people with cognitive disabilities or who have difficulties communicating with the operator, use of advanced

    communication technology for improving the safety of pedestrian signal crossings, use of smart devices for multi-modal trip planning, and improving coordination of and

    scheduling of human services transportation. In this report, the ATTRI team further analyzed the most popular topics discussed in the dialogue that were within the scope of

    ATTRI’s research program for the next five years. The top five ideas align with the potential ATTRI application areas identified in the draft ATTRI Strategic Plan (July 7,

    2014). These potential application areas focus on the emerging themes for ATTRI – personal mobility, way finding, connectivity, information sharing and coordination
