Safe Ride: In-Vehicle Assistive Technology Innovation

In June 2024, Freedom Solutions is launching a groundbreaking innovation project based on our Unique Solutions process.  

The goal of the project is to create multiple Assistive Technology designs, directly addressing safety concerns arising from road users who live with disabilities. 

The opportunity is to deliver on the right to safe transport for all by developing products and solutions that respond effectively to buckle release and associated challenges. 

Our volunteers, supported by staff and Industry Partners will work to develop designs that consider the safe system approach, universal design principles; and reducing or eliminating restrictive practices.  

You can join this project in two ways:  
1. Signing on a technical or supporting project volunteer  
2. Sharing your lived experience of road safety challenges via an online survey or registering interest in an in-person workshop.
