Portland State University’s College of Education and the Transportation Research and Education Center (TREC) are excited to reprise this 2nd annual interdisciplinary summit. We invite disability specialists, urban planners, engineers, transportation professionals, students, and community members to discuss the nexus between design, innovation, technology, and access. Themes will examine technological innovations that improve accessibility and wayfinding; smart cities; interdisciplinary approaches for intersections; unequal access to safe roads for those with disabilities who are persons of color; and opportunities for regional coordination across adjacent metropolitan areas, with an emphasis on the Cascadia region.

Eric Sinagra is CEO and co-founder of pathVu.Mr. Sinagra graduated in 2011 from Duquesne University, completing his B.S. degrees in Physics and Mathematics. Mr. Sinagra went on to receive his M.S. in Rehabilitation Science and Technology from the University of Pittsburgh’s School of Health and Rehabilitation Sciences in 2014. His Master’s research was conducted at the Human Engineering Research Laboratories, focusing on developing a standard for sidewalk roughness based on wheelchair user comfort. His research included the development of PathMeT, a manually propelled device to characterize sidewalk conditions, which is used for data collection by pathVu. In May 2014, Mr. Sinagra and his co-founders started pathVu with the goal of improving pathway accessibility for all pedestrians. Mr. Sinagra’s passion to improve accessibility derives from having an older brother, Nick, who uses a wheelchair.
