Over the past several months, I may have spoken with you regarding a project being undertaken by CNIB. Funded in part by the Government of Canada, we are working towards developing policy recommendations as to the introduction of connected and autonomous vehicles.
This project is looking at both international best practices/research as well as the possible impacts on pedestrians with sight loss as both infrastructure considerations change and vehicles start to become “smarter”; quotes on smarter.
Phase II of this project is to undertake a wide reaching stakeholder survey to understand how persons with sight loss or who are blind perceive the opportunities and barriers which will be brought about by vehicles that exchange data with one another and vehicles and infrastructure interacting digitally.
The stakeholder engagement phase of this work involves requesting persons with sight loss who are blind to complete an online survey. The survey should take approximately 15 minutes to complete. It can be found here.
Thank you for taking time to complete this survey and, if you can, please share it with others.
