Simulator Sickness Amongst Older Drivers With and Without Dementia

Driving tasks may be safely and cost effectively mimicked through simulator use. Simulator sickness is a side effect which simulation can induce, despite simulation being ideal for most driving research types and real world driving approximation. The authors studied how prevalent simulator sickness was in older drivers referred for driving evaluation, whether they were cognitively impaired or healthy. Past research agrees with study results that simulator sickness is more likely to be experienced by females. Further study may be merited through results which suggest that the incidence of symptoms may be reduced with the assistance of changes in the visual presentation of information to drivers during simulation exposure.
