Shabnam square

The use of automated vehicles by older adults with cognitive impairments
Date: 
November 12th, 2020 at 1:00 pm ET

Description:

While the race to bring automated vehicles to the market continues to accelerate, the societal implications of the wide use of this technology have not yet been fully addressed. Notably, developing licencing requirements that can accommodate individuals of all capabilities have been identified as one of the necessary first steps by the Canadian government. This talk will provide an overview of an AGE-WELL project on the use of automated vehicles by older adults and discuss the potential implications on licencing guidelines.

 

Speaker: Shabnam Haghzare, PhD Candidate, University of Toronto
