Traffic Safety can be increased by refining the typical assistance systems. Route calculation with reference to individual differences will lead to better driving performance on the generated route. This is due to a possible reduction of individual stress and allows choosing stress less infrastructural based situations associated with less stress thereby enhancing the driver’s performance. Two new basic route planning characteristics were developed: one to enable a more stress less routing and the other one as a training mode to increase drivers’ experience. Stressful situations were identified and known avoidance strategies of elderly people were additionally considered.
