Augmented Reality Distracted Driving Education Simulator (ARDDES)
Augmented reality (AR) is no longer science fiction but science fact. AR is an emerging technology that enhances reality by overlaying the virtual world over the real world, allowing you to see both at the same time.
Distracted driving is the number one cause of fatalities in ages 16 to 29. Smart devices and activities like texting while driving have caused driver fatalities to rise at unprecedented levels.
To stay on the forefront of interactive education and distracted driving prevention, peers introduces ARDDES. ARDDES is the country’s first augmented reality distracted driving education simulator.
ARDDES educates drivers about the dangers of distracted driving by using a real vehicle to simulate the driving experience.ARDDES system does this by placing the virtual world in the windows of the vehicle allowing the driver to drive through a virtual city while seeing the actual interior of the car. This allows drivers to safely experience distractions like texting, checking social media, or using vehicle features like the radio or navigation system while driving.
ARDDES changes driver behavior by showing the user what happens when engaging in this risky behavior.
Save lives and change driver behavior today by bringing ARDDES to your campus.
