The U.S. Department of Transportation [(DOT)] announced the opening of Stage I of the Inclusive Design Challenge. The Challenge seeks innovative design solutions that can enable people with physical, sensory, and cognitive disabilities to use automated vehicles. Stage I concept proposals are due October 30, 2020.

The Challenge is a part of a larger set of departmental initiatives on accessibility, announced at the Access and Mobility for All Summit.

The Challenge intends to seek solutions to improve passenger vehicle accessibility, encourage cross-disciplinary collaborations, incentivize development of new designs and technologies, and tap into the creativity and knowledge of the disability community, researchers, advocates, and entrepreneurs.

The Challenge asks researchers and innovators to develop solutions to solve our most pressing access barriers for people with physical, sensory, and cognitive disabilities. Design teams from academic and research institutions, the business sector, technology companies and analytics firms are invited to compete for cash prizes. Solutions may include both hardware and software solutions aimed to address barriers.

Save the date! U.S. DOT will be hosting a webinar on Wednesday, June 3 from 2:00 to 3:00 pm Eastern Time on the Inclusive Design Challenge. View details and registration information.
