Lesson I-StartStop

During the instruction (I) lessons, the proper order of actions is trained in a number of cases. These are procedure training lessons. The Virtual Instructor (VI) then ‘tells’ the trainee what to do, and the trainee is expected to perform these actions. Simultaneously, there’s often a popup on the centre display that lists the complete order of actions.

I-StartStop:  Start engine, drive off, stop the car, turn of engine:

01-I-StartStop is the first lesson in the curriculum. It is a procedure training lesson in which the following procedures are trained:
–             Starting the engine
–             Driving off
–             Stopping the car
–             Turning off the engine
Because this is a procedure training in which the order of actions matters, it is important that the student listens well to the instructions of the VI, and does not initiate actions independently. The training has two levels:

  1. Follow my steps: Step by step explanation of all actions in the correct order: the VI tells which actions have to be performed and the student then performs the actions, one at a time.  The student thus follows the VI and does not start doing actions on his own. For example, the VI may tell the student: “We are going to start the car. Listen to me and wait after each action”.
  2. Do by yourself: Perform the complete procedure by yourself from beginning to the end in the correct order. During this, a popup is displayed as a reminder, with the proper order of actions. As an example, the VI may tell the student: “Start the engine”.

The order of the training scenarios in the lesson I-StartStop is:

  • Follow my steps: Start the engine
  • Follow my steps : Turn off the engine
  • Do by yourself: Start the engine
