Supports seniors to drive safely
In the project CuARdian Angel research will be performed on how older adults can drive safe for a longer period of time. The project is part of the Active Assisted Living (AAL) programme that supports initiatives to improve the quality of life for the older population.
Due to the ageing population, the number of older adults that is driving a car is increasing. Despite of the consequences of ageing, most people still like to drive. Maintaining mobile for a longer period of time has many advantages amongst others the maintenance of independency, an active life style and social life.
The goal of the project is to develop and evaluate (innovative) services to support older adults to drive safe for a longer period of time. During the project we will look into making use of vehicle technology to measure and monitor the driving style. In this way older drivers can be provided with concrete advice on their driving style and improve this when necessary.
The end users, the older adults, will be closely involved in the process in order to create a service that meets their needs and wishes. In addition, several stakeholders will be closely involved in the project: elderly associations in the Netherlands, Belgium and Austria, Allianz Benelux, the Flemish goverment (MOV), CBR, ROV ZH, SWOV, S-Plus and V-Tron.
