Driving Decision-making in Dementia
Using Mobile Technology to Inform Driving Decision-making in Dementia
This project aims to take a step toward developing a data-driven decision-making framework using a GPS-based Driving Monitoring Device for physicians and other health professionals to ensure the safety of older adults with mild cognitive impairment or early dementia who drive.
The DRIVES Project
Developing digital markers of everyday driving to identify the earliest signs of Alzheimer's disease
Working closely with the DRIVES Research Team at Washington University in St Louis, we leverage methods in machine learning and digital technology to understand how preclinical Alzheimer’s disease (AD) and driving behaviours are related. Our main focus is how individuals with and without preclinical AD maintain driving abilities.
The ROAD-Skills Study
Leveraging mobile technology to support older adults to remain safe behind the wheel for as long as possible
This is the first study to examine the acceptability and feasibility of the Refreshing Older Adult Driving Skills (ROAD-Skills) program that has been developed and tested by partnering with seniors, driving instructors, and health professionals to encourage safe driving in later life.
