ANALYSIS OF OLDER-DRIVER SAFETY INTERVENTIONS: A HUMAN FACTORS TAXONOMIC APPROACH
To address issues related to older drivers, a tool has been developed to categorize a spectrum of countermeasures: a taxonomy of safety interventions. This taxonomy provides a framework for examining the problems and research directions associated with nine primary areas of focus: (1) driver licensing, (2) driver training/counseling, (3) crash-worthiness/occupant protection, (4) post-crash medical care, (5) behavioral medicine, (6) fitness-for-duty (FFD), (7) environmental issues, (8) cooperative systems, and (9) vehicle design/crash avoidance. The taxonomy is structured such that consideration can be given to each primary area independently and in relation to other primary areas. The applicability of ITS crash avoidance technology for older drivers can be addressed in this context. Considering sensory, perceptual, cognitive, and motor capabilities associated with aging, designing in-vehicle ITS for older drivers is apt to be challenging.
