You could get on the path to improved visual skills with this brain fitness training program

Take the DrivesharpTM experience. It’s effective, easy-to-use, and fun.

Wish you were more aware of other vehicles, street signs, and road conditions? In collaboration with Posit Science®, the leading provider of clinically proven brain fitness programs, AAA is pleased to offer you Drivesharp, a brain fitness training program that could help older adults see more of their surroundings, react faster, and reduce their risk of an at-fault accident.1 Drivesharp takes a unique approach to driving. It’s not a driving simulation or an education program, rather it’s a brain fitness software program designed to help sharpen the most important safety tool: the driver’s mind.

Multiple Object Tracking
The first Drivesharp exercise is meant to improve your ability to keep track of several objects at a time. In the exercise, you track road hazards as they move across a GPS screen. When driving in real life, this skill could help you keep an eye on the other cars, pedestrians, and other objects moving around you. Knowing where these potential obstacles are is the first step in avoiding an accident.

Useful Field of View
The second Drivesharp exercise is meant to improve your “useful field of view”—how much of a scene you can take in with a quick glance. In this exercise, you have to focus on a vehicle right in front of you while spotting something in your peripheral vision. When you’re behind the wheel, there are countless situations in which this skill is important. For instance, if you can spot a person or child in your peripheral vision early enough, you could stop your car before they bound into the street in front of you.
