Older drivers with age-related vision loss will be the focus of a new QUT study designed to test their on-the-road performance.
Studies show older drivers self-regulate their actions behind the wheel, but now a QUT road safety researcher is looking to find out who and what influences their driving decisions and how this feedback can ...
As the American population continues to age, new research is showing significant barriers to evaluations important to the continued safety and competency of older drivers.
University of Adelaide researchers are hoping that a new computer-based driving simulation will help lead to accurate, low-cost testing of older drivers' ability to stay safe on the roads.
