Urban mobility is a $1.5T market affecting 4 billion people. Our aging and disabled citizens are underserved by current transportation systems. Societal pressures and regulations require that everyone make all of their transportation fully accessible.
#AccessibleOlli is crowdsourced effort for you & your community to use cognitive & IoT technologies, design thinking & #STEM with schools to create the “world’s most accessible mobility” for aging & disabled. With Olli self-driving shuttle from Local Motors as testbed for integrating accessible designs and prototypes you create in a global design challenge and 9 city worldwide Watson IoT hackathon series. Your work culminates in CES `18 #AccessibleOlli exhibition with your #AccessibleOlli autonomous shuttle interacting with the public and assistive technologies such as autonomous wheelchairs.
