Technology Based Risk Mitigation Strategies to Improve Older Driver Safety

Grants and Contracts Details


This research will investigate crash patterns of older drivers and develop countermeasures and mitigation techniques to minimize crash exposure and crash severities. Previous research has shown that older drivers have increased crash rates and increased severe crashes with complex maneuvers such as left turns in heavy traffic; in addition this population has demonstrated willingness to self-regulate driving exposure in known hazardous situations such as night-time driving. The relatively recent development and integration of personal navigation system provides a tool that may be exploited to identify safer navigational routes that minimize hazardous movements and congested corridors to increase the likelihood of safe arrivals by older drivers.
