Scenarios

Training in Action

Showcased are images of actual VirTra training scenarios and environments. Watch trainees engage in a wide variety of situations:

  • The V-DTS in Action

  • Physical Realism

    Physical realism is created through vibration and motion, while the modern physics-based rendering engine provides visual realism through traffic density, natural hazards and roadside obstacles.
  • Instructor Abilities

    Instructors have the ability to change the traffic density, weather and time of day before or while a trainee is engaged in the simulation.
  • Recognition Stimuli Feature

    The proprietary Recognition Stimuli feature is an optional mode that, when selected, causes street signs and license plates to enhance when a trainee reaches a certain distance to increase their cognitive skills.
  • Training Objectives

    Instructors can choose from specific, pre-authored training objectives—including all basic emergency driving skills such as the evasive maneuver and emergency braking—defensive driving techniques or free drive.
