A human factor-based approach for the effective use of driving simulators and e-learning tools in driver training and education
Research Areas
  • Transport
Present state of driving simulators technology makes it possible to implement driver training applications with a growing level of complexity and fidelity to real driving conditions. Nevertheless driving simulators only become an effective tool in drivers training if they are effectively embedded as an integral part of the training curriculum. Such integration requires a methodical approach, and detailed analysis of the training curriculum, the learning goals and training needs. The paper presents the results of Humanist Task Force G in defining a human factors based approach for the effective use of the technologies in training taking into account cognitive aspects, as well the needs and specificities of the training process for different target groups - novice drivers, professional drivers, elderly drivers, and disabled drivers. Methodological conditions to enhance the acquisition of different levels of driving abilities and to use the new technologies as a tool of performance measurement are discussed,
