UPS uses new tech in driver training

To simulate the experience of city driving, UPS is introducing virtual reality (VR) in its driver training.

The first two VR training programmes are to be started at its European training facilities in Burton-Upon-Trent in the UK and Cologne, Germany.

“Virtual Reality offers a technological leap in the realm of driver safety training,” said Juan Perez, UPS chief information and engineering officer. “VR creates a realistic streetscape that will impress even the youngest of our drivers, whose previous exposure to the technology may have been through video games.”
