TRAIN-ALL - Training system for land-based drivers cohorts
TRAIN-ALL aims to develop a computer-based training system for different land-based drivers cohorts, that integrates multimedia s/w, driving simulator, virtual driving simulator and on-board vehicle sensors, into a single modular platform. The new system will be cost-effective and adequate for training and assessment. The core development will be focused on driving simulators, with the realisation of several prototypes. New simulation tools will be developed for motorcycle riding, passenger car (for novices and emergency drivers) and truck driving.
The new simulation tools will have many innovative features, such as AmI-based traffic participants (representing real individual drivers' behaviour), virtual instructor guidance, ADAS/IVICS training modules and will support co-driving, cooperative and group training, remote networking, dynamic scenario management, enhanced reality representation and adaptive training. Emphasis will be given on technologies and concepts to avert motion sickness phenomena, as well as to objectively define simulator fidelity level.
The developed tools will be tested and optimised in 10 pilots Europewide, aiming at products, guidelines, standards, certification and accreditation at pan-European level. This task is undertaken by a consortium of 17 Partners from 8 European countries, including 6 major manufacturers.
