Experience of vulnerable travellers with connected transport environment
This pilot will explore the inclusivity- and safety needs of vulnerable passengers using CAVs. The Apertum platform will be tested in Madrid, Spain, which acts as a smart step-free routing algorithm for the local transportation network for people with mobility constraints. In addition, several focus discussion groups in Rome, Italy will be held including persons with sensory impairments in close collaboration with the European Blind Union (EBU).
Pilot site: Madrid (Spain) and Rome (Italy).
