A “Circle Check” or a “Commercial Vehicle Pre Trip Inspection” is a mandatory step every time a driver takes his truck onto the roads in North America.
iMVR has developed a revolutionary, immersive, and affordable Virtual Reality (VR) module to teaching drivers globally how to perform their necessary pre trip vehicle inspection.
We actively collaborate with regional trucking industry experts and governing bodies to continuously evolve and update IRIS to meet the needs of truck driver training schools everywhere.
Using our cutting-edge interactive VR learning tool, drivers will learn the necessary steps to ensure that their circle checks are completed properly. The iRIS Circle Check module reinforces positive professional driving behaviour. Drivers walk the truck virtually and using our “Eye Tracking” technology can perform their circle check with their results being stored for evaluation.
Are the fluid levels topped up under the hood? Are the steps secure and in good condition? Does the fuel tank have any leaks, is the tank secure? Are all the lights working properly? Is the exhaust system in good condition and has no leaks? Is the muffler securely attached and the heat shield (if present) is secure. These are just a very few of the things that a professional driver is responsible to know to ensure the safe operation of their vehicle.
Multi User Learning Experience
Imagine that as your student / professional drivers are walking virtually around the truck completing their circle check you are watching and following their movements on the screen. That everything they are looking at is being recorded for future reference. Now imagine that your instructor is showing 4 students at the same time how to perform a circle check. Truly teaching in virtual reality. Well that’s exactly what the iRIS Circle check module does.
It allows for more reps. It also allows for supervisors to follow up on student’s video at a later time. It allows a student to review their own circle check to help reinforce those areas they might have missed. It also allows a corporate compliance officer from across the country to review a drivers video done in a different province / state. We know that VR training enhances driver confidence in day to day situations, experiences and decisions.
Customize – Fits like a Corporate Glove
Some trucking companies require their drivers to do more than the gov’t regulated circle check. You company policy could include that your drivers ensure that the trucks landing gear is working properly before you leave the yard. We can customize the circle check module to include the specific needs of your company.
Benefits of VR Technology in Training
Phil Fletcher, Operations Manager, Commercial Heavy Equipment Training Ltd (CHET) reveals how IRIS has supported a 10% reduction in insurance costs, lowered crash rates to less than 1/1000000 miles traveled which is in the top 10% of fleets in Canada and lowered driver turnover to below 10%.
VR is the fastest growing learning methodology in the world. At iMVR we recognized this early and quickly became the industry leader for the truck driver training industry.
People & Technology You Can Trust!
iMVR was started by people who came from compliance within the trucking industry. We know trucking and have collaborated with some of the industry’s best recognized truck driver training schools to create the most comprehensive virtual reality training platform for the trucking industry.
The IRIS platform creates a safe environment to develop memory retention and learn new professional truck driver skills. iMVR customers consistently see increased driver retention rates with use of the IRIS platform and suite of training modules.
