Abstract: Driving-related injuries associated with elderly drivers are on the rise although the overall rate of driving-related injuries has been decreased. To address how the increasing accident rates have become problem worldwide, the higher injury rates among elderly drivers from different regions are introduced. Then, this paper explores existing vehicle systems that use smart vehicle technologies to promote safe driving and analyses their limitations on utility, since current systems are not created by people with driving difficulties caused by health problems, which in turn often afflict the elderly. Moreover, based on elderly drivers with declining body conditions, a survey is used to discover the problems they encounter while driving and demonstrates how new system concepts can be developed for the elderly. Finally, this paper proposes integrated utility-based solutions for the elderly that can provide a more enjoyable driving environment for this population.
