Kivi Station is a driving simulator for people with reduced physical abilities, 100% made in Kivi, which allows the evaluation of the user’s driving capacity and therefore the identification of the device that better suits him to safely drive his vehicle.
With Kivi Station, it is also possible to evaluate other fundamental factors for the best use of the vehicle, such as the necessary strength to insert the hand brake, the requested mobility when fastening the safety belt and turning on the ignition with the key.
The user will then perform the driving simulation (comfortably seated either on a car seat or on their own wheelchair) through an interactive route that will re-create city traffic with different road signals (traffic lights, crosswalks, roundabouts…), pedestrians, and other vehicles.
Once the simulation is completed, a report with the results of the tests will be printed:
• Strength test: measures the physical strength during acceleration, brake and steering movement;
• Time test: measures the reaction speed when braking;
• Reaction test: values the general reaction in all driving phases;
• Visual field: verifies the width of driver’s visual field.
The printed report provides objective data that can be relied on to evaluate the driving abilities of the candidate and which device better suits him.
Kivi Station is provided with all Kivi driving devices, which can be placed and/or removed very easily, according to the needs of each person that will perform the test. This versatility allows Kivi Station to be used during fairs or exhibitions instead of multi-equipped vehicles, reducing therefore the stand costs.
Kivi Station is a valid analysis instrument when verifying driving suitability, making therefore the job of medical evaluation boards much easier for the release and renewal of special licenses.
