Autonomous vehicles (or driverless cars) are being developed to transport people safely without any need for those people to drive. These driverless vehicles will still need some input from the people using them - perhaps about the destination - and could also retain some control features.
The Intelligent Mobility team at Atkins is undertaking a study on behalf of a well-known car manufacturer to find out whether access to such vehicles would be desirable to a very specific group of people.
Particularly, we are interested in the views of people who do not have reliable use of their limbs or head to physically interact with technology, but who reliably interact with technology through voice commands, eye blinking or brain machine interfaces (a piece of technology which picks up a person’s thoughts).
We’re posting in this forum as we think some of your community may interact with technology in one or all of these ways and we would love to hear from you.

Please feel free to share the link in any other forums that you think may be relevant – we want to hear from as many people as possible.
