Measuring Attitudes Towards VR Technology Simulation Training of Train Drivers
Languages of publication
This paper presents the results of measurements of attitudes towards a demonstrative virtual-reality railway simulator for eco-driving techniques training. This device has been prepared for InnoTrans 2016 railway trade fair, and during this exhibition 144 railway professionals from 35 countries took part in the simulation and filled a questionnaire about their experience and whether they found this type of simulator a viable choice for railway driver training. The results have been very positive with barely any negative answers. This shows that a VR-based railway simulator could potentially be used as a low-cost solution supporting energy efficient train driving.
