Aged people integration, mobility, safety and quality of life enhancement through driving

Objective

In western society the older population is increasing, thus leading to a greater participation of older persons in traffic. This project focuses on two key milestones:
i) developing the required knowledge and tools to establish rational policies for delivering certification of fitness to drive and
ii) helping as much as possible older age groups to continue driving safely, as enhanced mobility leads to increased well-being for them.

AGILE aims to develop a new set of training, information, counselling and driving ability assessment tools for the elderly, evaluating their full range of physical, cognitive, behavioural and interactional abilities and not just checking a few sensory and motor functions (as is currently the case). To realise such a challenging task and achieve the targeted goals, a multi-disciplinary team of 13 Participants representing 7 European countries has been formulated.
