Marketing Text The use of the driving simulator is part of FCO in compliance with the EU directive 2003/59/EC. Driving simulator training has become a necessity to adopt a more fuel-efficient driving and to facilitate professional integration through exercices based on real life driving situations. Driving a simulator offers considerable advantages: it is an efficient approach to learning how to drive or to improve one's driving practices. It helps to achieve some of the most important project objectives by laying emphasis on safe driving practices and by learning how to react properly on dangerous situations without risking the driver's and other people's lives. Available in the 4 languages of the project (French - English - Spanish - Polish).
The guidebook about driving simulator training comes under TOT to FCO technical module. Driving a simulator is part of FCO. The guidebook has been uploaded onto the platform and is made up of 3 major parts:
1- Training on simulator. In this section, comparisons are made between simulators being used in each participating country (Thales in France, Lander in Spain, Autosim in Poland).
2- Scenarios: this part offers a wide range of driving scenarios set in different geographical areas, with diverse traffic environments and road infrastructures (urban, rural areas, hills, motorways, driving in bad weather, manoeuvres, etc)
3- Pedagogy applied to simulators
Instructors are the direct target group.
Drivers are the indirect
Result The Instructor's Guidebook on driving simulator training is available on the platform for the use of the project partners in order to extend it to their own training structures.
Area of application First aimed at our partners in Poland and Spain, the guidebook is now being extended at EU level and beyond to a large group of public and private stakeholders in the area of road transport via the IRU platform.
