In an attempt to improve skills of drivers, IIT Bombay will be undertaking a study to assist the transport department in setting up an indigenous driving simulator.
The institute was contacted a month ago by transport commissioner VN More to create an economical and sturdy training-cum-evaluation simulator to understand the behaviour of drivers on road.
More said: "More accidents are taking place due to errors in judgment and not due to deficiencies in driving technique. The simulator will be set up as an intermediary between learning licence and permanent licence to give more practice to drivers and help them understand their shortcomings. Given the poor road safety in the city, the commissioner is looking to introduce a test on simulator for drivers of heavy passenger vehicles who come to renew their licence."
