Honda automobile driving simulator enables trainees to experience a sense of driving that is closer to real-world conditions
Honda began sales throughout Japan of an all-new automobile driving simulator, which underwent a full model change, developed for the purpose of traffic safety education. To further enhance the ability of driver trainees to recognize and understand potential risks, a new function was added to provide easy-to-understand graphics and/or written descriptions of conditions where the driver should be cautious. The driver is also provided with advice on how to ensure safe driving in potentially dangerous situations that have a high possibility of occurring in the real world. This new function also helps the trainer to provide more detailed and precise instructions. The newly adopted high-definition 42-inch LCD display enables trainees to experience a sense of driving that is closer to real-world conditions.
Honda has sold approximately 200 units of the automobile driving simulator in Japan and overseas countries. Honda also develops and sells motorcycle simulators globally, and bicycle simulators as well as a PC-based automobile driving simulator in Japan with the goal of improving drivers’ ability to predict risks and increase safety awareness for a wider range of people who operate mobility devices.
