Thoughts on my attempted use of a walker to get in and out of my car:
1. Requires a tremendous amount of upper body strength - I am not challenged when it comes to upper body strength but it was hard.
2. need a middle leg or support to lean on when trying to grab the door or vehicle body with one hand
3. need wheels with direction and braking controls
4. need a narrower base to fit in tighter spaces
5. need a rivet at the bottom to rest legs on while grabbing the vehicle

Hey team! When we talked to John last week, you guys had two great potential paths for moving forward: 1) the emotional experience of deaf drivers. 2) experience of young drivers w/ physical mobilities and the stigma of adaptive vehicles (aka mini vans) As you continue your research, I encourage you to pursue these two avenues and dig deeper. When you present to Chrysler on Wed, this is a great chance to get some feedback on which direction might be most useful and impactful. In the mean time, I would continue your secondary and primary research to learn more about these two problem spaces specifically. Keep an eye out for stories from users and how people's behavior might differ than their words as well as any work-around people might have. This can lend itself to some interesting insights and opportunities. Look fwd to seeing you soon!

I just had a chat with our Design Advisor and I have attached key takeaways in the Files section. One big thing to note as MBAs...Let's not create solutions, or think of solution feasibility during the Identify or Immerse part of our project. We are just currently gathering information :)

Buzz mentioned that Molly might have done an interview. I don't see Molly on the loft! Can anyone share her interview notes? Would love to check these out! :)

Not sure how best to use this site, but in the FILES sections I added my notes from a phone call with the driving specialist at Northridge.

Key takeaways:
1) Wheelchair bound parents have a really hard time putting their children in car seats. She offered to put us in touch with some parents to learn more about this.
2) We could do a site visit the week of Oct. 20 and actually get into a vehicle
