For example, an older person may require many resting places due to discomfort when walking or standing for long distances.

As part of Global Accessibility Awareness Day, join Ford’s Rebecca Grier and Emily Obert as they break down who we are really talking about when we say people with disabilities, and share the potential of how our increasingly intelligent vehicles may better serve not just them, but all.

If freedom of movement is a fundamental human right, the transportation company of the future needs to guarantee it. Alex Roy calls it Universal Basic Mobility. Join Alex Roy, Argo AI’s director of special operations, discuss why Universal Basic Mobility is the future of transportation.
