AGNES Goes for a Walk & a Ride

AGNES Goes for a Walk & a Ride

AgeLab’s AGNES, Age Gain Now Empathy System, is being used by students and researchers to obtain a personal understanding of the ‘friction points’ in the transportation system for older adults. Where regulations provide for basic accessibility, there remain ‘micro-barriers’ that together make the streetscape difficult to navigate and public transportation less attractive. Students will work with planners and engineers to identify barriers beyond accessibility for older pedestrians and transit users.
