The 660Truckplus driving simulator enables efficient and cost effective truck driver training. Follow me on Twitter @jennalee. The ATS … GET REAL. But today, ATS motion has solved the problem by greatly reducing/eliminating SAS.

I'm a writer who looks at innovation and how technology and science intersect with industry, environment, arts, agriculture, mobility, health. FAAC’s immersive truck driver training simulators create vivid and compelling virtual environments, and have been demonstrated to improve safety and efficiency. Kearney says that if a truck driver had traditional training in a classroom with a book and ride-along methodology and then experiences an accident, there’s no proof he or she was trained in a particular skill and road hazard. Today, simulator truck driver training has made driver training safer and less expensive compared to live truck training. Kearney says he hopes that VR training will help bring new candidates to the trucking profession and create better prepared, safer drivers. The world’s first simulation based distracted & impaired driving experience proven to change behavior. One Simple Decision ® is VDI’s attitudes and behavior based driver training program. I've been called the tech. If you’re serious about CDL and ongoing commercial driver training, a truck simulator can make the difference. “With digital simulation, there is a record of the training and a record of the responses the simulation,” said Kearney. Feedback and statistics indicate that ATS’s Motion is superior in managing SAS compared to other simulators. How accurately the student’s competence and mental state are measured by the simulator and how effective the feedback is to the student and coach to correct student errors. Opinions expressed by Forbes Contributors are their own. The simulation-based impaired and distracted driver program was designed and proven to stop destructive driving behaviors. Young drivers “live through” real life consequences of driving distracted or impaired. UPS started putting drivers in virtual reality (VR) simulators in 2017 as part of basic safety training. “VR solves a classic training dilemma: how do you safely prepare trainees to deal with dangerous or extraordinary situations?”. It consists of a fully functional pneumatic driver seat with all typical controls, a seat belt, pedals and a fully adjustable (height and tilt) steering column with integrated flashers and trailer hand brake. Our schematic designs include software and training tools that you simply won’t find in other simulators. These biometrics help the student and coach pinpoint areas of stress so the student can practice the conditions that triggered the stress until the student is relaxed and competent. I've been called the tech Hemingway of Paris, named one of the top 100 women in technology in Europe in 2012, short-listed for best tech journalist by the TechCrunch Europas. The driving experience is so real the student may feel they actually arrive at a destination! An ATS simulator is like stepping into a freightliner.
