Assess the impact of Posit Science’s ‘DriveSharp’ software on performance in lab tasks and driving in drivers aged 60–75.


16 drivers where trained with the software and 16 were in a control group who received no training. An initial lab and driving session provided a baseline and another two weeks after the first provided the main outcome measure.

Key Findings:

  • Those trained using the software showed better performance on the useful field of view test.


Brain training, useful field of view.
