Augmented reality driver training in autonomous car simulator on real roads
Training young drivers isn’t that easy, and it’s enough to make you pull your hair out, well, unless you have a death wish and love living on the edge just for the adrenaline rush. One of the best ways to train drivers, aside from driving one of those vehicles with dual steering wheels and an extra brake pedal, is to use a simulator, VR-style, albeit a cruder version of, say, a plane simulator.
But what if we could use augmented reality to teach driver’s education, perhaps using a robotic driving indestructor, Freudian Slip, I meant “instructor” and before you say I’m crazy, let me give you some insight into my plan here. , since there is a bit of method in my madness, I think?
Now, Joseph B. White wrote an interesting article on April 26, 2012 in the Wall Street Journal, you may have noticed it yourself; “Google Seeks Partners for Its Cars” which indicated that Google was in contact with all the major car companies to see if they could license or partner with some of their latest autonomous vehicle technologies, a wise choice on my part. perspective.
Well, how about self-driving cars for driver training? The car would drive and the student would drive and the car would measure how closely the steering, braking, and throttle controls were applied by the student, compared to actually safely driving the car. -driving system, since the controls would not be connected but, nevertheless, they would be the latest in augmented reality simulation, see? Of course, as you know, all student performance results could be stored in Google’s new cloud offering; Ride! Maybe that’s why they call it driving, is it a test drive for something bigger?
Eventually, as enough video footage and data were taken, we were able to make the driving simulators so realistic that they would actually blow up fighter plane simulators. Also, no one could get hurt and no driving instructor would have heart problems or nervous breakdowns.
Would the robotic system record everything and give the student a pass or fail, or a list of areas of (many) improvements needed, or things to study for the future? And if we did this, we could also use the same system and strategy for truck drivers, until all trucks drive themselves of course, and also for student pilot training. In fact, I hope you will please consider all of this and think about it.
