Abstract

Date Presented 04/05/19

Visual, physical, or cognitive declines may impact older drivers, increasing their risk for motor vehicle crashes, injury, or death. Vehicle automation has the potential to reduce crash risk and promote independence. We conducted a scoping review to determine the impact of vehicle automation on older adults’ driving in regard to convenience, comfort, and safety. While vehicle automation improved aspects of driving, new technologies also presented challenges, such as increased cognitive workload.
