Robotaxi company Cruise demonstrates how a wheelchair can be used to board and operate one of the Cruise Origin robotaxis it has developed. Questions about the disability accessibility of autonomous cars are coming to the forefront as robotic taxi fleets proliferate.

This also gives disabled people and other groups affordable access to individual mobility.
