In-Car Technology in Driver Training

We’re often asked about the in-car technology we use as part of our lesson tool-kit. Many people see the tablet, but aren’t sure what we actually do with it. Well, apart from having transferred all our old colourful diagrams onto the I-Pad, there are 3 different tools that we’re now using routinely: Robosoul Driver Training Apps: These are interactive apps which we use to help our students visualise various routines and procedures.

 

A bit like pen and paper but with better graphics and a real time aspect to help bring home the dynamic. We find that these apps have really helped engage our students and lead to a greater understanding of what’s needed and why.

Google Maps (in aerial & street view): We use this to help clarify how to navigate the various possible routes and lanes through complex junctions and interchanges. It helps understanding of where the risks are coming from and where they need to be looking. We find these things really helpful for students to be able to get some overarching perspective on the quite complex traffic systems before they get actually get stuck into negotiating them. Preparation is everything, we find.

Dashcam Footage: We can record the road ahead and behind continuously and then play back sections of recording through our media player. Useful to help students to see what they actually did and/or what other drivers around them were doingat the time. Interesting how much of this the students are unaware of until they play back (but they’re always more aware the second time around).

The camera never lies! If you haven’t experienced these kinds of teaching tools in action, then you're seriously missing out. Why not come aboard and try them out for yourself?
