Benefits of using a simulator instead of learning the driving process from the beginning in a car
Using our driving simulator instead of learning to drive from behind an actual steering wheel has many benefits:
But even though the student driver is not exposed to the road during the first few hours of learning how to drive, the driving simulator recreates for the student the experience of driving an actual vehicle.
The driving simulation software makes the students work with different driving scenarios, driving skills¹, various driving terrains² and adding to it some atmospheric factors that affect driving.
Student drivers can also experience the feeling of driving at night, an experience that most driving schools are unable to provide because they only operate during the daytime.
To gauge the progress of the student driver, the driving simulator software has the ability to record the mistakes of the user, such as:
A message about these mistakes is delivered and the information is recorded for the instructor to help guide and improve your driving.
1. Anything from turning right/left, blind spots, three-point-turns, parallel-parking, merging into different lanes to ultimately preparing you for your road test. The simulator will help familiarize international students on to Ontario roads and understand the different MTO rules of the road with ease.
2. The visual scenes reproduce city, highway, country, maze, and maneuvering parking lot environments, with or without traffic and with different obstacles.
To increase the difficulty level, various atmospheric conditions can be applied.
Realistic sound is correlated with road conditions, engine RPM and speed.
The multi-display upgrade allows users to run and view the driving simulator application across three monitors generating a 180-degree horizontal view. This feature forces the student to turn his or her head and realistically imitates the driving environment.
