At the present moment, Virtual Reality Technology is primarily known for its entertainment value (especially in the gaming industry), but in theory, it can be used in many more different ways. Samsung Austria is teaming up with the National Motor Vehicle Association (ÖAMTC) in order to make its project a reality. The platform announced by the company is called “Samsung Drive” and the main idea behind the project is to provide a safe way for new drivers to explore dangerous aspects of driving a vehicle without putting their lives or anyone else’s at risk.

There are many things that can be theoretically explained, and other things one must undergo to really understand them. The idea of such kind of lessons is to show drivers how quickly an accident can take place when they are distracted, as well as the various consequences of their actions. The technology will be available at eight driving schools around the country and about 15 000 people will be able to learn using this new development.
