The simulator platform is placed under the car chassis and the entire car is tipped over slowly to simulate a roll-over car crash. The rotation can be stopped and locked in at any angle. The simulator electric motor draws a 230-volt household current so the roll-over simulation location is not limited by the need to access a special power source.
When the roll-over simulator banks the car (to about 20 degrees) the Rider find out that their seat belts do indeed work in way to save their life that they never dreamt possible. The Rider can experience the protective function of seat belts even in cases where the car rolls over completely. The Rider learns that seat belts work under these extreme conditions and this help them to fully understand their importance.
Even though the wearing of seat belts in rear passenger seats is not required, the simulator helps Rider understand why wearing them even in the back seat of cars is necessary. For parents, the simulator raises their level of awareness of the importance of seat belts in child safety (children often ride in the back seats of cars), as well as the correct fitting of child car seats (such car seats were recently made compulsory under Japanese law). The simulator is also an effective tool for helping student understand the relationship between seat belts and supplemental restraint system (SRS) airbags.
Course progress and curriculum
Course progress and instruction is carried out by full-time instructors in an easy-to-understand manner, enhancing the level of interest and comprehension of course participants.
90-degree roll simulation :
Students experience the way that their seat belt hold them when the car is inclined laterally. The software listed below must be installed to allow the viewing of moving images.
180-degree roll simulation :
Students find out how their seat belt holds them in even when the car is upside down
Getting out of a car that has rolled (90-/180-degree rotation) :
Students can safely experience what it is like to get out of the driver’s seat or passenger’s seat of a car that has rolled.
Training in how to use an emergency exit hammer (glass-breaking hammer) :
The course teaches students how to break window glass when doors will not open
