Skidcar System

 

The SKIDCAR SYSTEMŽ is an advanced driver training solution that teaches drivers to anticipate car control problems before they occur. With SKIDCAR™, drivers experience exactly how a vehicle will behave in situations that can cause traction loss, including adverse weather, excessive speed, rapid braking or steering errors. But unlike other programs that simply teach reactionary motor skills, SKIDCAR trains drivers to think, maintain control, and avoid trouble ahead of time.

  FAAC  

 

FAAC Incorporated builds and delivers high-fidelity driver training simulator systems for public safety and emergency response agencies. FAAC simulators are used primarily to develop higher cognitive driving functions such as judgment, multi-tasking, and decision-making in high-risk, low-frequency situations. In addition, simulators are used for teaching SOPs, incident command, and building muscle memory for basic driving techniques. Instructors replay the student's driving exercise for critique and remediation opportunities.
