Abstract

Simulator training form an integral part of driver training in rural India. As majority of the simulators are imported from the Western World they do not mimic the actual road conditions of rural India. This often leads to mismatches in the would be drivers perception of the Indian traffic and creates problems later on in their career which is manifested in the form of increased driver errors and at times fatal road accidents. This research looked in the user interface of such simulators from and usability perspective and came up with two concepts for these drivers which closely resembles the Indian rural traffic scenario.
