This study had two overarching objectives: 1) examine changes in the prevalence of advanced driver assistance systems (ADAS) in vehicles owned by a large sample of older drivers; and 2) examine changes in how these older drivers learned to use and what they thought about ADAS. This study updates a previous research brief that investigated ADAS prevalence, use, learning, and perceived safety among older drivers at baseline in the AAA Longitudinal Research on Aging Drivers (AAA LongROAD) project (Eby et al., 2017). The present study analyzed 3 years of questionnaire data from 2,374 participants enrolled in the AAA LongROAD project. Changes in prevalence, use, learning, and perceived safety for 15 ADAS from baseline to the end of a 3-year period (Year 3) were investigated.
