Make assistive technologies a requirement in the national parcel locker network, so that it can easily be used by seniors and people with disabilities, said MP Ng Ling Ling in Parliament on Monday (Apr 5). She suggested allowing pre-selection of lockers at the right height for those who are wheelchair-bound, and speech and tactile interfaces for the hearing- and visually-impaired. With an ageing population increasingly being cared for at home, Ms Ng also asked about the potential for the locker network to be used for last-mile delivery of medication.
