DEVELOPING A VIRTUAL REALITY EDUCATIONAL ENVIRONMENT FOR TRAFFIC EDUCATION

Road safety education has been recognized as an instrument for reducing road accidents. Efficient traffic education and road safety training are of extreme importance in urban and rural areas. An educational framework that will enable students and adults to develop the right behaviors, attitude and consciousness is necessary more than ever before. Road safety is defined as the set of rules, regulations, controls, sanctions, actions and actions aimed at safer traffic, pedestrians, drivers and more generally all road users. Unfortunately by studying the causes of the accidents, it appears that a minimum proportion of them is due to the vehicle, the weather and the state of the road. The overwhelming majority of accidents are due to man, whether he is a driver, a passenger or a pedestrian. Almost all incidents involving the human factor could be avoided if there was a strong sense of responsibility and if there was better traffic education. The necessary skills, attitudes and attitudes that make a person a responsible driver, passenger and pedestrian, are acquired at a much younger age. Consequently, circular education at the early stages of education is considered to be the main driver of accident reduction in the long run. Unfortunately, in reality, Traffic Education is an object that is very small, fragmentary and disorganized.

Information and Communication Technologies provide a wide range of tools that can be used to teach Traffic Education and have the same learning outcomes or even better than traditional teaching methods. Multimedia and Virtual Reality constitute important tools in the educational landscape that have the potential to provide more efficient learning activities and procedures.

School road safety education programs have been shown to be effective in increasing knowledge and safer behavior among participants globally. In this paper we present an innovative educational framework that aims to assist students in early education to study road safety efficiently in a virtual realty educational environment. An 3D virtual reality educational environment has been developed simulating various urban and rural areas and traffic conditions and students can study good cases of traffic , learn signs as well as study traffic priorities. The results from preliminary studies are quite encouraging highlight the learning impact of the environment on students learning.
