As the population of older drivers continues to grow, there is an increasing need to enhance their awareness and understanding of Connected and Automated Vehicles (CAVs). This study utilized an education program aimed at improving the knowledge and awareness of older drivers about CAVs, thereby preparing them to utilize the safety features of these technologies while effectively meeting the challenges that come with them. Through data collection and analysis from study participants, the research provides valuable insights for transportation agencies and technology developers to design and develop more adaptive technologies and associated education for older drivers. The findings from this research will contribute to promoting the acceptance of CAVs among older drivers, thereby improving their social equity among technology users. Overall, this research provides an important contribution to the field of transportation and technology and provides insights for policymakers, researchers, and practitioners.
