Talk 2: Self-Driving iVan and iVanna – Ready Get In! New Senior Center Transportation

by Dr. Katie Canty. Ed.D.

images (1)     iVan and iVanna might be part of a potentially new series of artificial intelligent vans. The “i” means that the vans are intelligent, smart, nursing assistants, and self-driving. The iVan and iVanna series will be for seniors who do not drive, do not want to drive, or who have limited mobility or transportation situations. The iVan series replaces gas fueled transport vans and the iVanna series replaces wheelchairs.

Neatest iVan and iVanna Features

     iVan: There are 4 to 16 seats in the iVans and each seat can detach and roll out to pick you up and take you back to the van. The iVan chair detaches and rolls up to your door, buzzes you, does a facial recognition security scan, helps to seat you, then rides you back to the van, seat belts you, locks back in place, and continues on to the next stop.  While in route, you have the option of asking the chair to monitor your vitals and to send a report to you, a caregiver, or family member.

   iVanna: Once your destination is reached, iVan reminds you to gather your belongings because iVanna, the super model of artificial intelligence chairs that walk, has been alerted and is waiting to travel with you like a personal assistant companion throughout the day during your 9 AM to 1 PM senior center activity day.  Enjoy your day of safe travel a lot more with iVan and iVanna—that is, when these new Dr. Canty inventions become reality!
