Driverless cars volunteers

Age UK are looking for older volunteers (50+) to help develop driverless cars in Bristol.

Older people often decide to give up driving because it’s no fun any more, or perhaps they’re losing confidence in their ability to drive safely. In an ageing population, there will be people with poor eyesight or perhaps cognitive difficulties who shouldn’t be driving. However, social activity is important and mobility needs to be protected. This is where driverless cars come in.

Flourish, led by University of the West of England, is set up to develop driverless cars in Bristol. Age UK Bristol is part of this group to help make sure the cars meet the needs of older people.

They need the input of volunteers over a number of months to years. The first workshop takes place on 21st April.
