Has the Time Come for an Older Driver Vehicle? - Part 1

The focus of this article is the aging of the world's drivers and the need and preference for personal vehicles to meet older drivers' mobility needs. After a discussion of changes in licensing and driving trends, self-regulation issues, declines in functional ability, and consequences of driving reduction, the authors examine vehicle design and advanced technology. They detail intelligent transportation systems (specifically advanced driver assistance systems and in-vehicle information systems) and briefly discuss a number of relevant design categories, including ingress/egress, seating comfort, visibility, cargo areas, dashboard controls.
