Research team seeks help from RSOs
A team from Loughborough University is seeking help from RSOs in generating responses to a survey to understand car drivers’ experiences and identify key challenges for car designers.
With vehicles becoming smarter and incorporating an increasing number of features and functions, the survey is setting out to find out whether they meet the needs of drivers of all ages.
The survey is particularly focusing on older vehicle users (aged 65 and over), including people who have given up driving in the last 12 months. RSOs are being asked to encourage older drivers to complete the survey.
The findings will be used to help direct future research in vehicle design.
The questionnaire takes approximately 10 minutes to complete and information provided will be held by Loughborough University and stored against a reference number to ensure anonymity. Information will only be used for this research and will conform to the requirements of the Data Protection Act 1998.
