In-Vehicle telematic systems and the older driver

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapterpeer-review


The car is rapidly changing. In addition to its traditional driving-related functions it is becoming a platform for various services and devices. Some of these are involved in the driving task and can improve its ease, comfort, and safety. Others are unrelated to driving and allow the driver to engage in various activities while driving. The aging of the driving population and the tendency of older people in many parts of the world to continue driving for as long as possible pose major challenges regarding the design of such devices and their deployment in cars. Some advantages, as well as some limitations these devices may have for older drivers are pointed out. Design of future in-vehicle telematic systems will have to consider these issues in order to provide maximum benefits for the older driver.
