Virtual Reality Videos Teach Drivers Road Safety
Hungary – UK and Hungary-based FrancisKodak Design Lab has created a virtual reality (VR) immersion safety course for drivers. The product, Another Set of Eyes (ANET360), combines traditional driver training methods with VR to teach better safety skills. It is the latest example of using total immersion technology to improve learning retention.
ANET360 puts students in real-life situations and hypothetical scenarios. Once hooked into the headset, the student is immersed in a 360-degree experience. The training course is based on situations every driver faces. It can also be tailored to client demands. The program has improved driver reaction time by 20% and reduced training costs by 50%.
The program also uses machine learning, which allows it to record user reactions across an unlimited number of scenarios. Once analyzed, the information can provide valuable insight into human decision-making and reactions in various situations. The knowledge will help improve road safety.
