Lyft created a Braille map of the self-driving route riders will travel on
Lyft announced it has partnered with the National Federation of the Blind and Aptiv to bring Aptiv’s self-driving technology to Lyft’s blind and low vision rider community.
To create an informative self-driving experience for riders, Lyft worked alongside LightHouse for the Blind and Visually Impaired to create Braille guides for self-driving riders. These materials include a Braille map of the self-driving route riders will travel on, as well as a diagram of Aptiv’s self-driving vehicle.
Together with Aptiv and the National Federation of the Blind, Lyft is showcasing how self-driving vehicles, and the technology powering them, has the potential to enhance transportation solutions for those who have traditionally faced barriers to mobility.
