The Simulator for Training Policemen to Perform their Duties at the Scene of a Road Accident
Purpose: The article presents the main design and construction assumptions of the simulator. It is a new generation simulator that allows for a radical increase in the effectiveness and efficiency of training policemen. Road safety is an important sphere for public life. One of the elements influencing the level of safety is lighting of vehicles, which was the subject of the analysis. Design/Methodology/Approach: The research was carried out by problem analysis and their synthesis. The research project consisting in constructing and then building a modern simulator using advanced technologies of immersion in virtual reality to train policemen in the field of conducting activities at the scene of a road accident. Findings: The conducted analysis highlighted the enormous potential related to the impact of vehicle lighting on traffic safety. The obtained results of research and construction allow for effective and extremely detailed training of policemen, which so far could not be achieved with traditional teaching methods. Practical Implications: The problems described in the article may contribute to increasing awareness of the impact of lighting on road safety. The multi-variant nature of the training profiles significantly increases the qualifications and skills of police officers. The use of advanced artificial intelligence algorithms allows us to eliminate even the smallest shortcomings that were almost impossible to detect by the instructors conducting practical classes in the previous training system. Originality: The article deals with issues and the sphere of public and economic life that are not discussed so often in scientific literature.
