Session focus: This panel was held as part of the 2022 Future Automated Mobilities Symposium at RMIT on 21-22 October. Inclusive design is a necessary element of future automated mobilities systems and technologies. Our panellists will explore the benefits of inclusive design of automated mobilities starting in the lives of people and physical sites where disability is lived and experienced. We will ask what the consequences will be if we do not do so?

I spoke at The Alliance for Praxis Research 2021 Spring Encounters session. The session’s focus was: The humanisation of everyday life is being explored by a wide array of approaches that are designing devices, places and policies. The intention is to debate to whom our cities, economy, services, and products are being conceived for and how to shift design, planning and architecture towards the emerging needs of our society. This session invites people to share and hear about experiences and solutions that are helping to envision and promote healthier, socially just and humanly richer environments and communities. I spoke about my research seeking to understand the experiences of transport and mobility of families of children with a disability and/or medical condition.
