Abstract

In the context of the aging society and digitalization, this contri bution aims to illustrate how a more inclusive and ergonomic ap proach can enhance well-being related to the daily mobility of the elderly. In the first part of the contribution the most important fac tors influencing the elderly’s mobility needs are highlighted, and then are analysed with two significant cases of autonomous vehicles for older users. Autonomous cars have the potential to enhance the safety and efficiency of silver mobility with two types of interven tion: digital ergonomics offers great flexibility with the potential to simplify functions and graphics layout, while physical ergonomics can explore new shapes and functions to make transportation tech nology more intuitive for seniors.
