Lisa D’Ambrosio presented a talk for TRIPPS on May 23, 2017, at the Brookline, MA senior center. TRIPPS distributes information and news about local transit services to people in the metropolitan Boston area, and it provides personalized support to older residents of Brookline and Newton who are in need of transportation alternatives. In her talk, titled “Keeping People Mobile Today and Tomorrow: Research at the MIT AgeLab,” Dr. D’Ambrosio gave an overview of the MIT AgeLab. She presented AgeLab work done with AGNES (the Age Gain Now Empathy System suit) and the results of research with older drivers around their feelings about driving, their reactions to new vehicle technologies, and their opinions about self-driving cars.
