In recent years, the number of traffic accidents caused by elderly drivers has increased in Japan. However, cars are an important mode of transportation for the elderly. Therefore, to ensure safe driving, a system that can assist elderly drivers is required. We propose a driver-agent system that provides support to elderly drivers during and after driving and encourages them to improve their driving. This paper describes the prototype system and the analysis conducted of the teaching records of a human instructor, the impression caused by the instructions on a subject during driving, and subjective evaluation of the driver-agent system.
