Project Description: This project involves a team of researchers and graduate students from engineering, kinesiology and occupational therapy across three Canadian universities (University of Ottawa, McMaster and McGill) that are using video and GPS data to quantify changes in actual on-road driving behaviour in a large group of older drivers. Our research will link the video and GPS data with measures of health and functional ability in this group. This study is the first in the world to capture changes in performance across time and identify key factors that will impact safety behind-the-wheel in older drivers. Findings are of value to health care practitioners, policy makers, automotive manufacturers and key players who aim to enhance the safety and quality-of-life of older drivers both locally and globally.

AUTO 21 Project Credits: Kinga Laura Eliasz (PhD student; AUTO21 HQP and student lead), Dr. Brenda Vrkljan (AUTO21 Network Researcher and student lead's supervisor), Daniel Srouji (HQP), Dr. Alex Crizzle (HQP), Tara Kajaks (HQP), Yu-Ting Chen (HQP), Dr. Isabelle Gelinas, Dr. Barbara Mazer, Dr. Robert Fleisig, Dr. Shawn Marshall
