Older Drivers’ Acceptance of In-vehicle Systems and the Effect it has on Safety

Older Drivers’ Acceptance of In-vehicle Systems and the Effect it has on Safety Drivers over the age of 65 make up the fastest growing segment of the driving population and are, in general, underrepresented in vehicle crashes due to their self-restrictive driving habits. However, as the baby-boomer generation ages into the population of older drivers, the presence of in-vehicle systems designed to counteract the physical and psychological changes of aging, could change their habits. Using a literature review to identify systems,... [Lire la suite]
