The effect of a new road safety device with auditory alerts on older drivers
(Canadian Multidisciplinary Road Safety Conference, 2008)
The purpose of this study was to examine a newly designed road safety device as used by older drivers. The Otto Driving Companion (Persen Technologies, Winnipeg, MB) is a portable device that provides drivers with "instant ...
Speed and acceleration patterns of younger and older drivers
(Canadian Multidisciplinary Road Safety Conference, 2006)
Driving and aging is an area that is receiving more research attention. Most studies have been epidemiological or laboratory-based. Few studies have examined in-vehicle performance, and those that do usually rely on the ...
Use of video technology and GPS as a tool for driver education – a preliminary investigation with older drivers
(Canadian Multidisciplinary Road Safety Conference, 2004)
Driver education programs have traditionally taken two general forms: in-classroom or in-vehicle. This study explores a variation on traditional in-vehicle driver education programs by using video technology instead of a ...
Modeling age-related neuromuscular changes in humans
(NRC Research Press, 2009-08)
With aging, motoneurons and muscle tissue undergo significant changes, which influence function in terms of strength, mobility, and overall independence. Mathematical modeling provides a practical method of studying the ...
