The purpose of this project is to research the requirements and potential effectiveness of creating and using a game-based assessment tool for senior drivers. This assessment tool will look at critical skills related to driving ability including visual and aural acuity, cognitive ability, and motor function related issues such as reaction time. The goal of the assessment tool is to provide senior drivers with ability-based information which will facilitate self-awareness, and empower them to make informed decisions about their driving future.
