The Virtual SKIDCAR Trainer is an advanced simulation system designed to meet rigorous driver training needs. VR Motion has designed this technology to provide a new level of realism using a Portable Desktop platform and the latest Virtual Reality software. The system simulates a wide spectrum of real‐world conditions in order to increase competency, situational awareness, muscle memory, retention, coordination, and safety of people and equipment. With the Virtual SKIDCAR Trainer, trainees can experience changing weather, day or night driving, hazardous conditions, blind spots, sensory distractions, and scenarios that cannot be easily duplicated or safely experienced in the real world.
Fleet drivers and Law Enforcement personnel require exceptional levels of situational awareness, proactive event evaluation, accurate responsiveness, and coordination. They must be prepared for the demands of rapidly changing and often extreme driving conditions. Real‐world training cannot quickly expose drivers to the wide range of circumstances they may encounter including Code 3 driving, low visibility, and inclement, unpredictable weather. This system has demonstrated high uptime, accurately reproduces in‐vehicle environments, and is both portable and easy to transport, setup, and use. The system also helps reduce training costs by reducing in‐vehicle training time and lowering associated risk, making it a perfect companion technology to the SKIDCAR SYSTEM®.
As winter sets in and frost, snow and ice starts sticking to the roads, the chance you'll find yourself sliding on the road goes up.
Skid Control Driving Academy recently got a Virtual Reality headset that uses a physical steering wheel with brake and drive pedals to simulate what it's like in different road conditions, different vehicles and even different times of day.
Traditional simulation systems used for professional driver training are typically expensive, proprietary, and complex to support and maintain. VR Motion has addressed those hurdles with this cutting-edge, scientifically-proven simulation system. The Virtual SKIDCAR Trainer not only provides improved training capabilities, but also offers analytics for driver performance and built‐in algorithms to allow for ongoing objective training evaluation.
