ADAS Can Really Help Elderly Drivers, Study Says
Jan. 28, 2020—Advanced driver assistance systems have the potential to help any driver stay safer on busy roadways. But a new study points to one group that might benefit more: elderly drivers.
Engineering and Technology reports that a study from the RAC Foundation suggested that ADAS would be really helpful to combat fatigue, collisions, lane departure and other things among older drivers, many of whom are more likely to be injured in a crash than their younger counterparts.
“More basic technology such as parking assist help make every-day, low-level tasks simpler and quicker,” the RAC report said according to the article.
In addition, telematics systems would be helpful to identify traits in elderly drivers. That would give them evidence to help decide when they are driving at their best and what trouble signs might be apparent in their driving styles.
