Mortaza Rezae (Curtin University/Autism CRC) detailed his mission to empower people with autism at the FameLab Australia 2018 National Final.
Transportation is a major obstacle for individuals with autism spectrum. It is common for them to be trapped at home, unable to participate in meaningful activities including employment and education, due to limited transport accessibility. In Mortaza’s work, they develop and pilot a mobile app that empowers autistic individuals to travel independently using public transport. The goal is to make the world a friendlier place for people living with autism spectrum.
