Zen Bus Driving Simulator

Check out Zen Technology's Bus Driving Simulator, used to provide standardized training by India's State Transport Department:

Drivers must learn to operate the vehicle and handle a number of challenging conditions like traffic, precipitation, freezing temperatures, and dust. The simulation software tests the driver's ability to preform critical tasks, for example the amount of time it takes them to bring the bus to a complete stop in the case of an emergency.

The simulator monitors driver's fuel consumption rates, to alert administrators to inefficient driving, and also delivers a list of all driver mistakes at the end of a simulator session. In the transportation industry, where fuel costs are at a premium, 3D simulators help operators gain the necessary expertise, while allowing organizations to overcome the high costs typically associated with heavy equipment training.
