Drive Square is stepping on the gas of simulation technology to develop what the company calls “innovative driver training products” for professional and military applications.
Not surprisingly, the advent of virtual reality is accelerating these aims.
The company, we’re told, has developed a low-cost driving simulation system, DS-575, “that aims at the driver education market and is priced under $10,000.”
Drive Square’s virtual reality trainers enable drivers to experience life-like driving conditions in the safety of a parked vehicle. These practice sessions enable individuals to improve their driving skills.
“Its benefits also apply in healthcare applications as an aid for occupational therapists who train and screen older or disabled drivers,” reads a statement provided to VRJournal. “Other applications include commercial and military driver training, DUI/DWI and texting and driving prevention.”
