Periodic Reporting for period 1 - ImmerDrive (Virtual IMMERsion for DRIVEr training and evaluation)
Reporting period: 2017-02-01 to 2017-05-31
By using simulators for training, novice drivers can get familiar with operating a vehicle and following traffic regulations in a safer environment, hence providing a less stressful experience. Professional drivers can be trained for specific company needs, new or foreign traffic regulations, and use of specific in-vehicle information systems. Furthermore, insurance companies can use driving simulators to increase driver’s awareness and improve their policyholders’ driving habits resulting into lesser insurance claims.
The objective of this project is to provide affordable driving evaluation and training services with ImmerDrive. We want to contribute to improving the abilities of new drivers, increase the efficiency of existing ones, and improve road safety in general.
