Examining older drivers’ risk - a telematics review of risk behaviours linked to fitness to drive testing and mild cognitive impairment

This presentation will detail a large-scale project focused upon older driver risk assessment (Fitness to drive). The work detailed is a collaborative project involving The Floow, Driving Mobility, Sheffield Teaching Hospitals, the University of Sheffield and Devices for Dignity.

The project is monitoring older drivers using telematics, cognitive testing and fitness to drive testing. The presentation will detail the project, its findings and what this may mean for future older driver safety and assessment approaches.
