Project

ABOUT 

The project CuARdian Angel II  (CARA II) aims at keeping driving safe and accessible for seniors and is part of the Active Assisted Living (AAL) programme that supports initiatives to improve the quality of life for the older population.

 

The main goal of CARA II is to develop innovative and effective products (CARA Selftest, CARA MyCoach and CARA MyRoad) to support elderly to drive safe for a longer period of time. Furthermore, it is planned to build a network of different end-users and stakeholders in order to get ready for a market introduction.

​During the first CARA project (December 2018 – May 2018) research was performed to identify the needs and wishes of the senior driver. Based on this, three product ideas were generated that were aimed to support the senior driver to drive safely and comfortable. In the follow-up project, CARA II, these product ideas will be developed in an iterative process in which all relevant end users will be closely involved. In addition, the business model will be developed.
