INVOLVE YOUR AUDIENCE IN A SAFE AND EFFECTIVE EXPERIENCE DEMONSTRATING THEIR SUSCEPTABILITY TO THE EFFECTS OF IMPAIRMENT AND DISTRACTION WHILE DRIVING.
Drivers and passengers can safetly experience a simulation of what happens when they attempt to operate a vehicle while impaired or distracted. SIDNE® drives in two modes, Normal and Impaired. As a participant drives SIDNE®, the instructor will switch SIDNE® between Normal Mode and Impaired Mode causing the driver to misjudge turns, speed, and braking distances.
- In Normal Mode, the vehicle responds appropriately to the driver’s steering, braking, and accelerating.
- When an instructor puts the vehicle into Impaired Mode using the remote switch, the driver will experience a slight delay in the braking, steering, and acceleration.
- These delays typically result in the driver losing control of the vehicle and a realization of how an instant of cell phone distraction or driving under the influence of alcohol and other drugs can lead to tragic consequences.
- The instructor has braking and stopping control of SIDNE® through the use of an infrared remote control. The remote operates at a distance of up to 75 feet, allowing the instructor to change the vehicle between modes, perform emergency braking, select the vehicle speed and power off the vehicle.
SIDNE® provides a safe and realistic alternative to golf carts, pedal carts and static computer driving simulators.See SIDNE® in Action
