Hyundai Motor Group has launched a pilot program in Singapore in partnership with SG Enable and the Singapore Association of the Visually Handicapped. The program aims to showcase an indoor/outdoor navigation solution for persons with visual impairment.
Hyundai is launching a pilot program in Singapore as part of its Universal Mobility Project. This initiative aims to enhance transportation for individuals with disabilities by implementing smart mobility solutions. The program follows the successful launch of EnableLA in Los Angeles, California, which utilizes wheelchair-accessible Hyundai and Kia SUVs.
The assistive mobility solution aligns with the Smart City vision, emphasizing the integration of diverse mobility solutions for persons with disabilities.
Participants with visual impairment will test an assistive mobility solution at Enabling Village in Singapore over a ten-week period. Their feedback and data will be used to improve the inclusive end-to-end mobility solutions.
Enabling Village will provide a public mobility solution for persons with disabilities and their caregivers. The solution will be accessible through a downloadable app.
Hyundai aims to become a human-centered mobility provider, prioritizing inclusivity for people with mobility constraints. They are working on developing a comprehensive mobility solution, including purpose-built vehicles, to improve transportation for those who need it most.
