The role of simulation in the assessment of older drivers.

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingConference contributionAcademicpeer-review


Within the project AGILE an assessment system for ageing drivers is developed. A multi-tier procedure including simulator-based diagnostic tests is will be created. Objective driver performance measurement, design of risky scenarios to test performance limits and high face validity are benefits of driving simulation. Older drivers might be, however, more susceptible to simulation sickness, side-effects of technological environments, and associated problems. The role of simulation within a test battery for older drivers has therefore to be considered carefully
