The Center has teamed with the Center for Automotive Research at Stanford (CARS) to initiate a new discussion about the increasingly autonomous vehicle. While fully self-driving cars are still 15-20 years away, auto manufacturers are equipping cars with increasing numbers of features that decrease the cognitive and physical demands on the driver. Self-parking and lane drift indicators are examples of the first wave of these features. Such augmentations are especially helpful to older drivers, who represent an increasing market share for manufacturers. We plan to develop a launch conference in the Winter of 2014 to bring together auto experts with aging researchers.
