Revolutionising Road Safety: Antrim and Newtownabbey Borough Council Embraces Innovative Virtual Reality Driver Training Programme.

London, 22nd of January, 2024

anet360 is proud to announce the launch of the 'Innovative Virtual Reality Driver Training Programme', a pioneering initiative in driver training and road safety, developed in partnership with James Tillyer, the renowned road transport consultant at Transformotion IRL. This state-of-the-art programme is specifically tailored for Antrim and Newtownabbey Borough Council (Northern Ireland) to elevate driving skills and significantly reduce the number of accidents within the council.

The programme stands out with its integration of 360-degree video technology, providing drivers with a panoramic and realistic driving simulation experience. This immersive approach is designed to enhance situational awareness and decision-making skills in various driving scenarios, all within a safe and controlled environment.

A cornerstone of this initiative is the advanced eye-tracking technology. This system not only records but also analyses eye movements, offering critical insights into driver focus and attention patterns.

This technology is not just about tracking where a driver looks. It's about understanding how to improve their concentration and reduce errors, leading to a substantial improvement in road safety," said Ferenc Boroczky, founder and CEO of Another set of eyes (anet).

Our programme marks a significant leap in driver training methodology, combining traditional learning with innovative technologies. The eye-tracking and immersive platform centralises data and simplifies analysis, making it more accessible and actionable.

"We're not just offering an innovative learning experience; we're shaping the future of road safety through training," added James Tillyer, Director of Transformotion IRL.

By equipping council drivers with knowledge through innovation, Antrim and Newtownabbey Borough Council is demonstrating its commitment to road safety and continuous improvement in driver proficiency.

The Innovative Virtual Reality Driver Training Programme represents a fusion of technology and education, redefining personal computing in the realm of driver training. It’s a testament to the power of innovation in creating safer roads and more skilled drivers.
