AgeLab talks to Discovery about aging drivers

Tue, 03/06/2012

AgeLab research scientist Bryan Reimer was featured on the Discovery Channel in Life Behind The Wheel: A Roadmap For Safety. In Part 3, Dr. Reimer discusses driver distraction and how difficult it is for us to multitask.

In Part 4, research scientist Lisa D’Ambrosio discusses the unique needs of older drivers. Dr. D’Ambrosio introduces AGNES, the AgeLab’s Age Gain Now Empathy System, which imitates the physical limitations that an adult in his late 70’s osteoarthritis and diabetes may experience.

All four parts are available here.
