The risk of being involved in a traffic car accident increases with age. Countermeasuressuch as advanced driver assistance system and retraining programs have both been waysof trying to reverse this trend. This thesis sought to merge the two countermeasures byexploring the idea of a system that gives feedback on elders' driving. Two separaterequirement assessments were carried out with the aims to address what, when and howfeedback should be communicated to elderly drivers. Additional aims were to assessrequirements that could affect the acceptance and trust in relation to the system. Firstly,a literature review assessed requirements based on preexisting knowledge in relevantdomains. Secondly, focus group interviews with driver instructors and elderly drivers wereperformed to assess requirements in relation to the specific system idea. The resultsreveal several requirements that could serve as input to the design of the system. Theresults and their possible implications are discussed.
