When it comes to driving, you can’t be too careful. That’s why students typically go for driving lessons first before they are given a chance to drive a car full time. It just makes sense.
And in Austria, they could be turning to VR to give students a better lesson.
According to a study conducted by the Austrian automobile association, they found that in 2015, 76% of distracted drivers were not able to brake on time to avoid obstacles or accidents. And so together with Samsung Austria, they will be using the Drive VR app to teach beginner drivers about the dangers of distracted driving in a safe environment. VR is a great way to teach them.
This should show drivers how quickly an accident can take place when they are distracted, as well as the consequences of their actions. VR will help to immerse students in virtual scenarios, which should be a lot more effective than simply talking about it. It seems like a good move to teach drivers. In the future we could see more schools use the technology in this way and incorporate it into their lessons. It will be interesting to see how well this works to create better drivers.
