FOREWORD This report presents the results of a laboratory study that examined the relationship between age, spatial ability, and navigational skill. The results were that older drivers and drivers with lower spatial ability showed worse navigational performance than younger drivers and drivers with higher spatial ability. However, a simulated in-vehicle turn-by-turn route guidance display enhanced navigational performance for both older and younger drivers, and for drivers with varying spatial… CONTINUE READING
