Conceptual architecture of motorcycle simulators for the training of novice riders

Konzeptionelle Architektur von Motorrad-Simulatoren fuer die Ausbildung von Anfaengern

Brazilian traffic presents alarming rates of accidents and deaths, particularly among motorcyclists. Studies show that most of these accidents are determined by human error. Thus, a better traffic education constitutes a social need for security and public health in Brazil. In this context, training in vehicular simulators emerged as an alternative for improving the traffic quality. This paper presents the study conducted by the authors on motorcycle simulators for training of novice drivers. It also aims to evaluate three models of motorcycle simulators: a commercial one, the "Honda Riding Trainer", a modified version of this and a prototype developed for the study. The study is based on a literature review of motorcycle simulator solutions all around the world. This review was followed by observations of the use of the 3 models, involving 60 students of a driving school from a Brazilian suburb. As a result, the paper gives a revision of requirements of motorcycle simulators and an optimized architecture proposal of these systems to the Brazilian context, in order to provide better driving training for safer traffic.
