Nebraska Safety Center Offers New Driver Simulation Exercises

Posted: Updated:

The Nebraska Safety Center at UNK has recently acquired a new mobile driving simulation machine thanks to a grant from the Nebraska Office of Highway Safety.

The center's driver education course consists of four phases: classroom study, Range activities, Simulation exercises, and On–Street driving.

The center's simulators are state–of–the–art machines where CPU's are linked to a realistic driving cockpit. The Simulator curriculum starts with the basics of how to start the vehicle and includes advanced driving scenarios (like driving in inclement weather). The real benefit comes from allowing students to experience real–world, and sometimes dangerous, driving situations in a safe environment.

The mobile simulator also has a trailer outfitted with a number of highly interactive games, exercises, drills, and experiences to demonstrate the effectiveness of a Driver Education program as well as the dangers of distracted driving.
