SIMULATORS: A SAFE PLACE FOR A CRASH COURSE

Transit authorities are now looking to emerging technology for better driving simulators that are claimed to not only cut training costs and accidents, but also to be close to the real thing. Some are as simple as having the trainee watch a video screen. The other end of the spectrum includes fully interactive simulators like those used in aviation. "Kinesthetic" or sensory cueing is a major difference in the technologies and the costs. More sophisticated versions of the technology attempt to replicate the full experience of the person being trained.
