Can virtual reality create safer drivers?

Can the virtual world have an impact on the real world?

That’s the big question as we’re joined by psychology professor at Nottingham University, David Crundall and James Evans, founder of First Car magazine. We look at:

  • Clueless or careless?
  • Are young drivers really just thrill seeking yahoos?
  • What role is their for virtual reality in road safety?
  • The benefits of VR for learner drivers
  • Are overly graphic visuals appropriate?

Project EDWARD (Every Day Without A Road Death) is an annual UK-wide road safety campaign backed by government, the emergency services, highways agencies, road safety organisations and British businesses.

The Campaign, Managed by Projects Zero, promotes an evidence-led, ‘safe system’ approach – the long-term objective of which is a road traffic system free from death and serious injury.

Our aim is to provide a platform that showcases some of the best work being done around the country to promote:

  • Safe Vehicles
  • Safe Road Use
  • Safe Speed
  • Safe Roads and Roadsides
  • Post Crash Care
