With more features being added to automobiles, all drivers can benefit by learning how these technologies work to influence safety. In particular, it's important to understand which features may be able to enhance driving abilities for mature drivers and support safe driving over a lifetime.
Smart headlights, emergency response systems and reverse-monitoring features rank highest in car technologies that benefit mature drivers according to The Hartford and MIT AgeLab's Top Technologies for Mature Drivers Research.
Smart headlights address an issue that many mature drivers say they experience: 24 percent of the drivers age 50 or older indicated seeing at night is a concern for them, according to The Hartford and MIT AgeLab's survey.
This graphic illustrates the top 10 technologies that benefit mature drivers as identified by an expert panel, and the top concerns of drivers age 50 or older from the research conducted by The Hartford and MIT AgeLab.
