-- an interactive computer software program for driver training and driving safety-- helps prepare drivers for
normal and highly stressful driving situations. Profiler requires drivers
to maneuver through a realistic driving environment and react to potential
hazards. The fifteen-minute Video Reality driver training experience consists of five levels,
each more difficult than the last. Feedback is given on areas where the
drivers need to improve their abilities. The end result is better, more
Profiler is not intended as a tutorial to teach new drivers
how to operate a motor vehicle, nor it a driver education program for
teaching the rules of the road.
Profiler can be used as an assessment tool to validate novice driver
training, and is very useful as a risk management tool to help identify
drivers who may require additional training attention.

Profiler driver training
tests and trains drivers to continually scan their environment. Sampling
the entire environment is one of the more important skills in reducing
automobile accidents. Novice, trainee and expert drivers will benefit from
taking the test, because it helps develop and maintain strong hazard perception
improves driving safety, decision-making skills and the ability to do multiple tasks while
driving. In addition to steering the vehicle, the driver must pay attention
to hazards and make decisions about how to respond.
driving situations become more stressful due to environmental conditions,
traffic, speed or other factors, drivers typically begin to narrow their
concentration. Our research suggests that accidents occur during stressful
driving situations because drivers no longer scan their surroundings and
anticipate what will happen in their environment. As drivers take Profiler,
they are exposed to extremely stressful driving scenarios that become more
complex in the higher levels. Profiler helps people deal with stressful
situations by reducing tunnel vision as they learn.
of the cornerstones of successful training is providing constructive, meaningful
feedback to students. Profiler provides feedback in two ways:
graphs: The graphs demonstrate a students ability to recognize and
react to the hazards in a pictorial format. A sophisticated statistical
algorithm generates the driver's results. The graph will highlight areas
that need improvement and point out strong areas.
Action Sequences (CAS): Corrective Action Sequences use the analyzed
test data to determine areas that need improvement. Then Profiler shows
short video clips that give immediate feedback on how to improve a driver's
kinds of feedback will help drivers improve their skills. In addition,
the information can be used by a trainer to tailor his course to improve
weak areas and enhance strong areas.
is based on more than ten (10) years of studies using computer-based programs
to assess visual and decision-making skills. The program is the culmination
of the research and provides scientifically grounded results. Published
studies are available on request.
is inexpensive to administer. Each registered student can take non-scored
practice laps that will help him or her improve their skills.
