China has a very large population base on which aging occur. On the other hand, China has one of the fastest-growing fleets of automobiles in the world. The number of private car older users is increasing dramatically in Chinese urban areas. This demonstrates that the Chinese vehicle market needs design research and innovation for local older drivers. However, through literature review, this paper shows that few research studies on Chinese drivers are available in either international or Chinese journals. Moreover, in the design research community, there are limited data to direct designers and the automobile industry in the effective design and integration of new technologies, especially for older drivers. This paper concentrates on introducing research background knowledge in order to identify the future research gap. The research proposal has been present as well
