"Autonomous Cars could be a lifeline for people with disabilities once the industry gets around to it from American public media. This is marketplace tech I'm Ali would. On our show we've been talking about accessibility and how technology is or isn't making the world more accessible for people with disabilities. Last month we spoke with Harbin Girma who's deaf blind she said, self-driving cars could be an especially powerful tool imagine the freedom the independence I was talking to someone who works at one of these companies and he said Oh you know we're a few years from releasing the cars. So maybe ten years from now will. Disability access. So how our car company is approaching autonomy and accessibility, and couldn't they include access for all from the ground up mark? Takahashi works for Edmonds an auto research site. It is very likely that they will not have any sort of controls. It'll simply be you tell the car where you WanNa go and it takes you there. If you look at the concept for the Google self driving car from several years ago it had no pedals and no steering wheel. So there is a scenario where they could say we salad pod and he can get in and out of this Pod, you could purchase an aftermarket unit to hold wheelchair in place but beyond that everyone gets the same pod. That is entirely possible and it's actually been proposed several times Toyota at CAS a few years ago. It was this box on wheels that you configure to do whatever you whether it's public transportation or Anamika deliveries or transforming it into a food truck or a station or whatever. You can think of to put inside of a rolling box, and that is a blank canvas for anyone to work with whether they need accessibility or not. So if we're not doing that, is it an assumption that people won't want to buy that or is it just like a lack of will? It's hard to say these blank canvas boxes are certainly being considered and actually the Toyota version was supposed to be in action. By now because it was slated to make debut at the Summer Olympics. How. Far Away are we though from being able to put perfect faith in that pod? I. Would Hope best-case scenario between eight and ten years that everything will finally come together. We'll have the high speed networks we'll have processing power and cars and will have all those sensors built into the vehicles that need them. It sounds like you're saying companies really could they could reset cars, they certainly could create. A blank canvas that would be accessible for all instead of trying to bolt on features after the fact, why wouldn't they? Well, cars have a lot of personality and for some people it tells other people what they want that car to represent them as. So if we have a blank slate box on wheels, it's not. Doesn't. Have a lot of personality not in its base form at least. So there's still this idea that AH vehicles should say something about its owner, right? Per in Gourmet Sake, I'M GONNA say get some bumper stickers. MARCECA works for Edmonds an auto research site. Our own Kimberly Adams hosted the week long kickoff to this coverage find all those stories at Marketplace Tech Dot Org. And now for some related links, we've got linked to our interview with Ben Girma at Marketplace Tech Dot Org, and you heard Mark Takahashi mention Google's original pod design. Sad News on that front that little pod, which was a durable by the way was called the firefly and Google killed it in two, thousand, seventeen. It now uses regular old cars to test self-driving tech. Also. At our website, a link to a white paper from two thousand seventeen by the Ruderman family foundation that makes us strong economic case for including the disabled in autonomous car designed. The research shows that would open up job opportunities for up to two million people and save something like nineteen billion dollars a year in healthcare costs because seniors and people with disabilities could get reliable access to doctors, appointments, and medical care. The Department of Transportation Says, more, than twenty five, million people have some kind of disability that makes it difficult to leave home that can lead isolation and even death because of that absence of medical care that I mentioned. And while this is a design problem, it actually could be a policy question Congress has been grappling with how to regulate autonomous cars and all kinds of ways do they need a human driver? Where can they drive? Should they have breaks or a steering wheel? If the Americans with disabilities, act regulates building and construction design couldn't regulators also have a say in making driverless cars accessible for all. And don't worry listen I'm a car person, but I'm totally game to get one in bright red or put a spoiler on it if I really need to show my identity on the road to.
