Innovations in technology are driving accessibility across the world. Connected devices, sensors and more are improving the lives of seniors and people with disabilities. The Consumer Technology Association Foundation, is set to recognize accessibility startups as part of the accessibility showcase during the annual CES January 9-12th in Las Vegas (at the Sands).

As part of the showcase CTA will host two new panels at CES 2018: Living Independently in Smart Homes, focusing on how smart home technologies are enabling greater independence for people regardless of age or ability; and Accessible Self Driving: Innovations for Independence, examining the benefits self-driving vehicles can provide the aging and disability community.

Also new for CES 2018: a pilot of the AccessibleOlli, the world’s most accessible self-driving vehicle, will be on display at Tech East in the Grand Lobby of the Las Vegas Convention Center. A crowd-sourcing initiative driven by the CTA Foundation, the AccessibleOlli prototype features cutting edge technologies produced by IBM and Local Motors.

“The CTA Foundation is proud to support companies working to help seniors and those with disabilities,” said Steve Ewell, executive director, CTA Foundation. “Whether it is in IoT, smart homes, robotics, health and fitness, vehicle tech, smart cities or any of the other innovative, breakthrough technologies at CES, we’re excited to see technology enabling independence for people of all ages and abilities across the show.”
