“I am a big fan of computer games and fast cars. What was affordable on the market 10 years ago did not meet my desires and expectations. My team and I developed an augmented reality environment in a compact simulator. We soon realised that the platform could have other, more important usages, which led us to evaluating and training drivers in a simulator.
The simulator measures how the driver reacts in a dangerous situation. The scenarios are adapted to the driver's preferences and road regulations of specific countries. We observe the driver's performance and collect biometric data, which tells us how the driver would react in real life. Everyone wants to know if they drive safely, how to improve and how their skills compare with others. Simulation testing received positive feedback both in Slovenia and other EU countries. Anyone can try it when they go to major trade fairs, conferences and events dedicated to safe driving or new technologies in general. The simulator can also be rented out to companies which specialise in transport or road construction, planning and traffic regulations.”
