Road safety, accident prevention & eco-driving simulators

All our driving simulators provide pedagogical inputs related to road safety (accident prevention), energy-efficient driving (fuel saving), and facilitate the acquisition of skills required to pass the driver’s license required to operate passenger carrying vehicles, or heavy vehicles such as civilian or military trucks.

For your training needs, our driving simulation systems can be completed with specific features to your field of activity like Defense, Civilian Trucks, or Bus & Coachs..

Accident prevention (road safety)

The first benefit of a road safety driving simulation is the ability to put the driver and to analyse his behavior in dangerous situations without risking his and other people’s safety.

A 40% decrease of road accidents has been reported for risky drivers after undertaking an accident prevention simulation training.

To teach road safety on driving simulators, traffic density and aggressiveness of the surrounding traffic can be configured. Artificial Intelligence is integrated in our simulators to provide a realistic behavior to vehicles traffic and to pedestrians.

Events generated by the approach of the simulated vehicle are introduced in the scenarios, including vulnerable road users, such as :

  • Pedestrian crossing suddenly, hidden by a vehicle
  • Non-observance of traffic light by a cyclist
  • Unexpected skateboarder or a kick scooter rider on the road

Unlimited variants can be introduced on these events with our scenario editor so that each driver trained on the same theme can meet different conditions.

Saving fuel (eco-driving)

The control of traffic lights as the simulated vehicle is approaching allows several drivers to be confronted to a similar context in order to practice energy efficient driving (or eco-driving). It is possible to compare the fuel consumption of the same driver before/after training, or to compare the fuel consumption between all drivers of a training group.

Fuel consumption reductions of 10% have been observed on real operations after training on eco-driving simulators. The simulator assesses in particular:

  • instantaneous fuel consumption, displayed in real time
  • average and total fuel consumption
  • engine speed ranges used
  • number of gear ratio changes
  • number of braking applications
  • number of stops (at signals and commercial)
  • the overall driving time
  • the predicted post-training fuel economy over a long distance

Developing the skills for civic and defensive driving

The training provided by our heavy vehicle driving simulators and the supplied base scenarios help develop the learner’s defensive driving skills, as well as any other skills required to obtain the C (heavy goods vehicles and transport of goods) and D (transport of people) driver’s licenses:

  • Controlling vehicle driven in light or without traffic
  • Performing handling maneuvers
  • Mastering of the vehicle gauge in normal traffic conditions
  • Driving in difficult conditions and share the road with other users
  • Practicing autonomous, safe and fuel-efficient driving
