Title Development and evaluation of a high-fidelity simulator training program for snowplow operators
Date 2004
Description The safe operation of a snowplow requires a high level of expertise. Drivers often operate in very stressful situations, maneuvering 30 tons of equipment in tight quarters in blizzard conditions. Drivers often work long shifts, negotiate their vehicle in heavy traffic, on slippery roads with very limited visibility. For safe and efficient snow removal in urban settings, drivers often plow in a tight tandem formation and communicate heavily between vehicles.
