Honda Begins Sales of Honda Safety Navi Safe Driving Educational Software for PC-based Auto Driving Simulator

Honda Motor Co., Ltd. begins sales in Japan of Honda Safety Navi, new educational software for safe driving developed for a PC-based automobile driving simulator.

Combined with a retail personal computer and accessories such as a steering wheel, Honda Safety Navi provides a simple and easy to use automobile driving simulator. Honda Safety Navi will be sold as software alone or bundled with the recommended hardware.

Leveraging know-how Honda accumulated through its development of automobile driving simulators that Honda has sold mostly to driving schools since 2001, Honda Safety Navi was developed for a wider-range of users. The use of a personal computer enables the user to readily experience the simulator in a space as small as a desk. In addition, users learn simply by following the on-screen and audio instructions, making an instructor unnecessary.

Honda Safety Navi contains two types of programs. One program (“Eco-Drive”) helps users understand fuel-efficient driving techniques and learn key points of eco-driving. The other program (“SD* Coacher”) helps users learn key points of safe driving in the case of risks inherent to various road conditions such as snow, rain, and night driving.

Honda Safety Navi is designed to enable users to enjoy learning about eco and safe driving. This is the first time for Honda to develop software for an automobile simulator which helps users to learn eco-driving.

By pricing it affordably, Honda aims for widespread use of this software -- which enables drivers of all levels, from beginner to experienced, to learn safe driving through a virtual experience -- by a range of customers including automobile dealers, public offices, companies whose employees use automobiles for commuting or business purposes, and driving schools.
