         11.Computer based Training systems for land based
            drivers and waterborne pilots (Multisectoral) IP,RD: 4.15
• Objective: To create an integrated harmonised computer based driver and
  waterborne pilot training system which represents a major advance in terms of
  common standards and approach. Consequently a major contribution will be made
  to safety through improving the “human factor” which is the underlying cause of
  most accidents.

• Scope:. Key industrial actors will provide an integrated, flexible and practical
  tool that will be more integrated, flexible (modular, common platform etc),
  affordable and adaptable to a wide range of scenarios. Using an integrated
  approach the research will address issues such as data sharing, data libraries,
  curricula, validation, responses and behaviour within standardised scenarios

• Outcome: A demonstrable widely accepted training system which will be
  affordable and can be a common basis for driver and waterborne pilot
  training in a wide range of environments . It will support transfer and sharing
  of data, in particular concerning hazard scenarios and driver/pilot responses.
  Consequently it will create a valuable pan European body of knowledge that would
  be valuable for many stake holders. The project will enable wide spread use of
  computer based training and for those concerned it will demonstrate a significant
  reduction in accidents.
