AGING DRIVERS AHEAD : DESIGN WITH CARE

This article focuses on the interaction between Intelligent Transportation Systems (ITS) and elderly drivers. It examines crash statistics, mobility patterns, and human factors research related to ITS in-vehicle technologies.The author contends that whether senior citizens buy and benefit from ITS technologies will depend on how well the devices address their safety and mobility needs , and if they are designed according to human factors principles.
