Abstract: Getting into a car accident is dangerous for everyone, but the severeness escalates when heavy vehicles and Personal Mobility Devices (PMDs) are involved. In Singapore, only 20% of accidents involves heavy vehicles and PMDs, but its fatality rate constitutes almost half of all fatal accidents. This project aims to develop a software that helps heavy vehicle and PMD drivers practice safe driving on the road to better avoid getting into accidents. Specifically, a driving simulator is developed to create a safe virtual environment for both parties to gain some experience of driving in the real world. Some objectives of the simulator include inculcating safe driving habits like checking blind spots and keeping within the speed limit. Many safety scenarios are incorporated into the project, such as a few of the most common causes of accidents and would test the learners’ reaction to such scenarios, and they would be given an assessment score of their driving at the end of each module. User feedback was obtained from learners after using the simulator. The results suggested that users gained more insights on ways to avoid accidents after going through the simulator, and the simulator allows learners to better understand their driving capabilities. On this basis, a driving simulator for Class 4 learners should be an official curriculum in all driving schools.
