WESTRAN HOSTED DISTRACTED DRIVING SIMULATOR MONDAY
October 29, 2019 12:00PM CDT
Westran High School welcomed an augmented reality driving program Monday. Principal Mark Harvey says it was a cool opportunity presented to the students.
The program is called ARDDES, which is short for Augmented Reality Distracted Driving Education Simulator. Joshua Jackson, a brand ambassador for the PEERS foundation explains how the simulator works.
Students will get in a car and put on an augmented reality headset, then drive through a virtual city with jaywalkers, cars running through red lights, and other potential hazards which could cause an accident. Harvey already sees an impact this is having on some students.
The ARDDES machine works its way all over the United States, and will also have a stop in Milan Friday.
