This thesis examined older drivers’ mobility and behaviour through comprehensive measurements of driver-vehicle-environment interaction and investigated the associations between driving behaviour and cognitive functions. Data were collected and analysed for 50 older drivers using eye tracking, GNSS tracking, and GIS. Results showed that poor selective attention, spatial ability and executive function in older drivers adversely affect lane keeping, visual search and coordination. Visual-motor coordination measure is sensitive and effective for driving assessment in older drivers.

Driver self-regulation and depressive symptoms in cataract patients awaiting surgery: a cross-sectional studyFraser, Michelle; Meuleners, Lynn; Ng, J.; Morlet, N. (2013)Background: Cataract is an extremely common visual condition of ageing. Evidence suggests that visual impairment influences driving patterns and self-regulatory behavior among older drivers. However, little is known about ...
Investigating the spatial pattern of older drivers' eye fixation behaviour and associations with their visual capacitySun, Qian (Chayn); Xia, Jianhong (Cecilia); Falkmer, Torbjörn; Lee, Hoe (2016)Visual capacity generally declines as people age, yet its impact on the visual search patterns along sections of different road during actual driving still remains undocumented. This on-road driving study simultaneously ...
