World-renowned scientist and Nature of Things host David Suzuki visited the Kite Research Institute's Challenging Environment Assessment Laboratory (CEAL) to seek answers to some of his questions around aging well and achieving a better quality of life.   

Suzuki, 83, put his sensory and motor skills to the test in our immersive world of streetscapes and virtual roads, better known as StreetLab and DriverLab.

With the help of Kite scientists and researchers, Suzuki assessed his eyesight, balance and hearing to discover how these factors impact mobility and safety, especially as we age.

He also spoke with CEAL Chief Scientist and Kite Research Institute Academic Director, Dr. Jennifer Campos, to better understand how state-of-the-art simulators like StreetLab and Driver Lab help drive research into aging well and safely.
