Fellowship focus: Tackling the issue of assessing older and vulnerable people’s proficiency to drive using an advanced driving simulator.

Currently, there are no systematic assessment tools for motor and cognitive skills which GPs can use to determine whether to approve driving license extensions. Building on an existing collaboration, Professor Sodnik will bring SimFit2Drive – his innovative solution for assessing basic driving skills – to Surrey and collaborate with researchers in transport, AI and sustainability to consider the wider societal objectives of the tool and to exploit commercialisation opportunities. Studies will be conducted with elderly drivers to prove the concept, and collaborative research will be disseminated through a series of lectures, seminars, webinars, conferences and joint publications.
