Toyota launches TeenDrive365 simulator

By ,

Last week at the Detroit Auto Show, Toyota launched its new TeenDrive365 simulator which aims to educate teenagers and parents about the dangers of distracted driving.

To experience the new TeenDrive365 simulator you get behind the wheel of a stationary Toyota car, put on the Oculus Rift headset and are fully immersed in a virtual reality driving experience, complete with the three dimensional sights and sounds of a busy city street. 

During the simulation, you are challenged to drive safely using the car’s steering wheel and pedals, while navigating a series of common distractions, including traffic noises, the radio, text messages and virtual friends who occupy the passenger and back seats.
