Have you ever had a driver not secure the kingpin properly or pull forward without raising the landing gear properly. Incorrect uncoupling and coupling can be very dangerous. While the consequences are severe, the steps are relatively few. We need to create muscle memory in our drivers. Using VR technology is the best way to reinforce good repetitive behavior.
Like any other training, starting with the proper curriculum is a critical first step! Whether it’s using a governing body guideline like MTO or your own companies best practices, the steps to follow are what we will track during that drivers session.
Because IRIS is multi user, a trainer can be showing a student(s) how to proper couple a truck to a fifth wheel. Then allow the trainee to do it on their own.

Vickie’s vision is to create a VR tool that will allow professional drivers to develop, repeatedly practice, and become comfortable with various driving techniques throughout their career. This understanding and comfort will create more confident professional drivers that will inherently lead to increased road safety.
