The main objectives of this study are:

  • To evaluate the driving capacities in a population of elderly subjects with early stage Alzheimer Disease (AD) in a real-life situation.
  • Define a typology of the main errors made in this population.
  • Propose adaptive measures or technological aids that would make it possible for these patients to maintain their ability to drive a car while limiting risk.
