ELECTRONIC SIMULATOR AS A VALUABLE TRAINING AID TO TRAIN AND EVALUATE AUTOMOBILE DRIVERS

The use of Simulators as a device to familiarise and impart basic training for operating complicated machinery, flying aeroplanes and to study operations involving men and machines has been in use for a number of decades now. However, the use of Electronic Simulators for imparting basic training and evaluating automobiles drivers is a recent concept brought to India by the AAUI. Two types of Electronic Simulators Systems are used :-

a) Car Simulator for giving basic training for LMV driving.
b) Truck Simulator to evaluate trained HMV drivers.

The Systems are computerized and have audio-visual facilities to recreate various scenes encountered by a driver while driving his vehicle. A variety of road conditions are simulated to give practice and develop methods for safe driving.

Some of the major advantages in using Simulator are :-

1. Training can be given in all weather conditions to more than one person at a time.

2.  As against learning driving on the road, fear of accidents is eliminated in early stages, giving psychological  advantages to the learner.

3. Fossil Fuel consumption is eliminated, cutting down the pollution and resulting in economy in cost.

4.  It is possible to introduce different light conditions like fog and night along with the different grade of slopes to teach hill driving.

5. Coordination of various controls by the learner is smoother and adds to the confidence of the learner while going for practical driving on the road.
