HOLOGRAPHY IN DRIVER EDUCATION, TRAINING, TESTING, AND RESEARCH
This experiment was devised to create a safe, realistic, and economical method to hazard-train student drivers on the roadway. After an extensive literature search of previous experimentation and an analysis of seven possible training methods, a preprototype model of a holographic student training car was constructed and tested. The holographically re-created objects, projected by automobile roof apparatus and displayed on the road by a windshield film, were found to be the safe, realistic, and economical method needed for the hazard training. After success with the holographic preprototype model, additional research will advance holography and a preproduction model should be constructed using the newest research knowledge.
