Car technology - time for an IQ test?

Designing and evaluating technology with older drivers. Why be tested to distraction by technology that's supposed to be helping?


Ever wondered why some technology is so difficult to use? Ever thought you were being tested to distraction by the technology that was supposed to be helping you? This talk will look at one way of evaluating and designing technology for everyone to use - through participation of some of the most demanding consumers around - older people. The MODAT project team - Product Design and Engineering collaborating with Computing Science in this EPSRC/SPARC funded research project investigating Advanced Technology and its relationship to the requirements and needs of Older Drivers. The talk will centre around two case studies of participative research and design, highlighting the opportunities and difficulties of this method.
