Weigh In on Self-Driving Cars

Autonomous Vehicle Study for People with Disabilities in Houston and Austin, Texas

Autonomous vehicle (a.k.a., driverless car or self-driving car) are already on the road. While this technology is expected to improve individuals' mobility, far too little attention has been paid to its accessibility for people with disabilities.

Texas A&M University doctorate student Jinuk Hwang is conducting a survey of people age 18 or older who live in Houston and Austin, Texas who have visual impairments or physical disabilities to get your input on this issue.
