With the commitment and firm purpose of reducing deaths from traffic accidents in the country, the National Institute of Traffic and Land Transport (- Instituto Nacional de Tránsito y Transporte Terrestre INTRANT in spanish), will use a car and heavy vehicle simulators as a pilot test, to optimize the process of practical test for obtaining driving licenses, through Dekolor.
INTRANT, as the regulatory entity for, transport, and road safety, aims to promote road safety to reduce deaths and injuries from traffic accidents. In this sense, its Executive Director, Rafael Arias, considered that “the introduction of advanced simulation technology in the driver’s license process will contribute very positively to road safety, since it will allow conducting evaluations of the driving in a precise way, thus raising the level of demand for drivers ”.
Rafael Arias added that “the system automatically considers those specific points related to the rules, safety, and attention that are required of the future driver.
More accurate and consistent exams
The Simescar car simulator allows a practical driving test to be carried out autonomously, verifying the control points required according to the specific regulations. During the evaluation, the future driver will face various situations and simulated conditions with totally realistic dynamics and sensations.
Car and truck certification, with the simulator
