Driver Simulator

The Driver Simulator features a true-to-life automobile dash with speedometer, tachometer, fuel and temperature gauges. It is proven effective in developing perceptual/cognitive skills, scanning techniques, mirror usage, critical cue recognition, decision making skills and crash avoidance strategies. It provides superior hands-on training/assessment while achieving Specific Training Objectives (STO).

Driving simulator system is the major training/testing tool for developing proper perceptual judgmental, and behavior driving skills as well as procedural and manipulative response skills. it is a laboratory component usually conducted concurrently with the other phases of driver education and/or Defensive Driving programs. It offers a variety of learning opportunities and experiences not always available and other phases of traffic safety education.

 

Purpose

 

The safe, efficient operating of a motor vehicle development of both manipulative and perceptual skills.
