Design lab develops virtual safe-driving course
Combining machine learning, VR and traditional driver training methods, the course can improve driver reaction time by 20 percent
Another Set of Eyes (ANET360) is a virtual reality (VR) immersion safety course for drivers created by UK and Hungary-based FrancisKodak Design Lab.
Combining machine learning, VR and traditional driver training methods, the course can improve driver reaction time by 20 percent and reduce training costs by 50 percent. The 360-degree videos immerse students in a range of everyday driving situations, and content can be tailored to students’ specific requirements. Training materials are accessed via the ANET360 app.
A user’s reaction can be recorded in different simulated situations thanks to machine learning. When aggregated, the information provides valuable insights into patterns of human decision-making and can be used to further develop and improve road safety and education.
ANET360 is the first accredited VR hazard awareness training programme under the Transport for London and Fleet Operator Recognition Scheme (FORS) in the UK.
Selected for the Createch 2019 Ones to Watch, produced by the Creative Industries Council with the support of Digital Catapult, London & Partners and Springwise.
