Vehicle Design Research for Chinese Elderly Drivers

Zhao, Chao, Popovic, Vesna, Luis, Ferreira, & Lu, Xiaobo (2006) Vehicle Design Research for Chinese Elderly Drivers. In 7th International Conference on Computer-Aided Industrial Design and Conceptual Design, 2006. CAIDCD '06., 17-19 November.


China has a very large population base on which aging will occur. On the other hand, China has one of the fastest-growing fleets of automobiles in the world. The number of private car older users is increasing dramatically in Chinese urban areas. This demonstrates that the Chinese vehicle market needs design research and innovation for local older drivers. However, through literature review, this paper shows that few research studies on Chinese drivers are available in either international or Chinese journals. Moreover, in the design research community, there are limited data to direct designers and the automobile industry in the effective design and integration of new technologies, especially for older drivers. This paper concentrates on introducing research background knowledge in order to identify the future research gap. The research proposal has been present as well.

Citation counts are sourced monthly from Scopus and Web of Science® citation databases.

These databases contain citations from different subsets of available publications and different time periods and thus the citation count from each is usually different. Some works are not in either database and no count is displayed. Scopus includes citations from articles published in 1996 onwards, and Web of Science® generally from 1980 onwards.
