The VAIST Concept to Train Novice Driver. An Approach Taking Advantage of Temporal Sequence Learning with a Closed Loop Check Procedure to Mentally Program a Driver

This paper presents experimental novis driver training carried out in Sweden in an effort to show and explain how a human being can be mentally programmed to gain increased ”crashavoidiness”. The working name of the concept is VAIST - Vehicle Adapted for an In-creased Skill of a Trainee) - a novis driver training concept based on driving exercises where the trainee will experience vehicle behavior near the limits for the road grip. It is a multidisciplinary practical concept where a special vehicle is used capable to adapt to the actual skill of the trainee. An increased crashavoidiness for a human means that a) the human will have an increased skill in handling a vehicle, b) in a near accident situation the human will more likely behave constructively, and c) panic reactions are eliminated to a great extent.
