Drs. Classen and Vandeweerd (Co-PI) and their team of co-investigators (Drs. Mason and Stetten) and industry partner Mark Reid from Beep received a Florida Department of Transportation (FDOT) Grant (Project ID: TEO-22-04) to assess Safety and Mobility Benefits of Autonomous Ride Sharing Services Among Older Adults in five Florida Counties.
The grant will “kick-off” in May 2022, with the goal to determine older adults’ perceptions before and after exposure to autonomous ride sharing services. The information is critical for informing education, practice, and policy initiatives pertaining to facilitators and challenges for autonomous ride sharing services.
