Integrate stop and caution warning signage into heads-up displays to help older drivers brake sooner for potential hazards.
Older drivers are over-represented in urban crashes, a German study found that in-vehicle driver warning systems could help with this problem.

Include pedestrian collision warnings on in-vehicle heads-up displays to reduce reaction time, maximum deceleration, and, in some cases, stopping distance and braking time.
Study performed with sixteen drivers with actual pedestrians in a parking lot environment evaluated a display showing the word “BRAKE” and a virtual shadow that changes size as the vehicle gets closers to the pedestrian.
