This expansive book encompasses state-of-the-art research in gerontechnology and promising new technologies, products, and services that can improve activities of daily living, general health, and well-being of older individuals. It addresses current and future applications in such crucial areas as mobility and transportation, assistive devices, smart homes for senior citizens, in-home technologies, safety and privacy, and research and development highlighting-among others-design.

Topics include, but are not limited to, virtual environments as a research tool, sensation, perception, and cognition research advancements, novel accessibility challenges to information and communication technology, as well as the evolving characteristics of the elderly.
