VALIDITY OF DRIVER SIMULATOR TRAINING

An attempt was made to test the effectiveness of a Czechoslovak driving simulator, ART 65, and skill transfer to manipulating a real automobile. Subjects were 3 men and 7 women, 23-39 yr. old, all beginners, who received 7 lessons: 2 with slides, 4 with screen projection, and 1 driving a real vehicle. Performance in lessons 1-6 was registered on a graphic recorder in the simulator; 2 operators were used to check the behavior of the driver in Lesson 7 (real car). The simulator training produced skill transfers, shown in 8 graphs depicting individual manipulation skills (e.g., shifting, clutch, brake). It is concluded that the achieved positive results notwithstanding, the fixed base simulator is not entirely satisfactory and should be replaced by a moving-base type. /A/
