Simulation & Virtual Reality Training

Simulation is fast becoming a credible alternative to traditional methods of driver training delivery, and as such DriveWise offers synthetic training alternatives through simulators and virtual reality (VR).

Single Seat Simulator

The Single Seat Simulator has been developed to raise awareness of various driving related topics that have the potential to become dangerous, including distracted driving, fatigue, winter driving and hazard awareness.

The simulator is optimised to support training through a comprehensive suite of driver training courseware and maximises the amount of training that can be delivered through simulation, thus providing highly effective and repeatable learning benefits for delegates.

Features and benefits include:

  • Driver training platform incorporating behavioural change
  • Vehicle controls – representative high-fidelity driving experience
  • Transportable for ease of deployment
  • Training in complete safety
  • Repeatable
  • Cost-effective

Virtual Reality System

The Virtual Reality System is specifically aimed at parking and manoeuvring, one of the main areas of concern for a fleet/transport manager.
The training scenarios include:

  • Parallel parking
  • Bay parking
  • Manoeuvring through a busy car park
  • Spatial awareness
  • Reversing to the left and right

The Driving Experience

Both the Simulator and VR systems provide realistic platforms for driver training, with the chassis incorporating high fidelity vehicle controls, such as gearstick, pedals and steering wheel, a realistic vehicle dashboard and high-quality displays to provide extended field of vision. Various weather conditions and road surfaces can be applied, and the time of day can also be changed to enhance the driver’s experience.

Personal Plan

The course concludes with the coach and driver reviewing the output reports from the Simulator/VR system and developing an ongoing driving plan. The DriveWise coach will set improvement goals during the post training feedback session to give the delegate targets to reduce their exposure to risk.
