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.

Unpacking Older Drivers' Manoeuvre at Roundabouts: Their Visual-motor Coordination and the Underlying Neuropsychological Mechanisms.Sun, Qian; Xia, Jianhong (Cecilia); Falkmer, Torbjorn; Foster, Jonathan; Purwaningsih, M.; Vaz, Sharmila; Lee, Hoe (2016)Driving through a roundabout requires precision in visual-motor coordination; a skill that is sometimes challenging for older adults. The curvature of roads plus moving cars on different directions places high demands on ...
Towards unpacking older drivers' visual-motor coordination: A gaze-based integrated driving assessment.Sun, Q.; Xia, Jianhong (Cecilia); He, J.; Foster, Jonathan; Falkmer, Torbjorn; Lee, Hoe (2018)Visual information for a driver is predominant during driving. Linking drivers' visual search patterns with motor behaviour helps understand how drivers perceived spatial and hazardous information to regulate their physical ...
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 ...
