Hence, drivers today are using or about to use equipment for which they have not been trained. The interactive multimedia s/w tool and simulators of TRAINER will enhance the risk awareness of novice drivers, while they will be acquainted with existing and emerging in-vehicle ADA systems (i.e. ABS, EDS but also Adaptive Cruise Control, Navigation aids, etc.) and they will be fully supported in all the driving task levels (Strategic, Tactical and Control) by adequate tools.
