Modeling and Validation of Standards for a Sleeper Compartment on Accessible Passenger Rail Vehicles

This Innovations Deserving Exploratory Analysis (IDEA) project proposes to extend the 3-D modeling of the accessible lavatory and to build a full- scale soft mock-up of the sleeper compartment which contains a lavatory with a shower for evaluation by people with disabilities for final validation of the proposed standards.
