Pilot assesses role of simulated hazard awareness


Devon & Cornwall Police have unveiled a new state-of-the-art motorcycle simulator, which will be used to engage with inexperienced riders. Funded by the DfT and Vision Zero South West, the simulator is described as the first of its kind in the UK. Using a real motorbike – a Honda CB500X – the simulator is operated using custom software to test rider’s hazard awareness skills with authentic controls including brakes, clutch, throttle, and indicators to replicate real-life road conditions.

Riders aged 16 years and over will be surrounded by integrated video screens to provide a truly immersive experience; replicating a huge range of road layouts, weather conditions and driving environments, and enhanced by realistic vibration, surround sound and working wing mirrors.
