Accessibility: Older Adults

Older adults, people ages 65 and older, may face challenges in being active members of society due to potential physical and mental limitations as they age. Our research looks for ways to improve the agency and engagement of older adults. With an inclusive design approach, we investigate how existing and future technology can be improved to serve the needs of older adults, such as examining the way autonomous vehicles can be designed to support older adult needs.

PROJECTS:

  • Self Driving Vehicle Focus Groups Older Adults
  • Age and Help Seeking for AV
  • Enactment Studies
