Self-driving Vehicles and Older Adults: Contribute, Ask, Learn, Experience

BERKELY, CA–Adults age 55+ can learn about how transportation advances can transform their independence and dignity during the second Aging2.0 event hosted by Elder Care Alliance on Tuesday, Feb. 19 at 6 p.m. at Poet’s Corner Event Space in Berkeley, CA.

Rosemary Jordan, Aging2.0 ambassador and vice president of strategy and business development at Elder Care Alliance, will moderate a panel discussion including Zafar Razzacki, head of product at May Mobility, and Ben Thompson, business development lead at May Mobility. They’ll discuss May Mobility’s recent work and invite participants to provide direct input into the future design choices for the vehicle.

Leading a new sub-category—self-driving shuttles—May Mobility just closed its Series A financing. May Mobility offers a unique way to create a social transportation option. The company is committed to an inclusive user-centered design process that imagines an intergenerational riding community.

Engineers at May Mobility are seeking the voices of older adults and people with disabilities in the design process. They invite people to help change the global conversation about aging and add their voice to this discussion of the promise and limitations of self-driving vehicles.  

Networking and social time with hors d’oeuvres and refreshments begins at 6:00 p.m. Panel discussion and Q&A will run 6:30 to 8 p.m. This event is free for adults over age 55. To RSVP click here.
