ADS-DV User Issues for Persons with Disabilities

It is expected that level 4 and 5 Automated Driving System – dedicated vehicles (ADS-DVs) will eventually enable persons to travel at will who are otherwise unable to obtain a driver’s license for a conventional vehicle, namely, persons with visual, physical, and/or cognitive impairments.

The purpose of this report is to document user issues specific to this population of ADS-DV users.
