U.S. Department of Transportation (USDOT) Offers Free Webinar on ATTRI Projects

The USDOT is hosting a webinar to provide an update on two Accessible Transportation Technologies Research Initiative (ATTRI) projects. The webinar will discuss some of the progress being made by ATTRI, and specifically, the TRX Systems and the City College of New York (CCNY) wayfinding and navigation projects.

Participants will hear directly from TRX Systems and CCNY about the successes and challenges of their wayfinding and navigation initiatives. These were two of six projects awarded contracts by the USDOT this year to develop technology prototypes to improve mobility options for all travelers, particularly those with disabilities.

ATTRI is a joint USDOT initiative co-led by the Federal Highway Administration, Federal Transit Administration, Intelligent Transportation Systems (ITS) Joint Program Office (JPO), and other Federal partners.

For people with disabilities, including older adults and injured veterans, inadequate mobility and transportation can be a barrier to obtaining employment, commuting to appointments, shopping for groceries, or attending social events that many take for granted. ATTRI leads efforts to research, develop, and implement transformative solutions, applications, and systems to help all people, particularly those with disabilities, effectively plan and execute their travel, addressing individual mobility needs. ATTRI leverages recent advances in vehicle, infrastructure, and pedestrian-based technologies, as well as accessible data, mobile computing, robotics, artificial intelligence, object detection, and navigation.

The USDOT ITS JPO is sponsoring this webinar. It is free and open to the public.
