    Abstract [en]

    The use of of simulators in education is increasing. The aviation and medical education have a long history of implementing simulator training and education. With a strong body of scientific research that validates their use in education. As the technical development has increased, the availability of affordable simulators has increased their use in driver education. Unfortunately the research is not as strong as with the aviation or medical education. There are some support that simulator-based education can improve hazard perception but not so many other skills. Therefore I want to examine the effectiveness of a simulator in teaching Eco-driving skills to drivers. 20 students from Yrkesakademin were recruited as they were learning to drive trucks. The study is of between group design where the experimental group practiced Eco-driving skills in the simulator. Data were collected of the participants fuel consumption and speed. The control group were shown a video lecture on Eco-driving. The experimental group did significant improve while the control group did not. These results support the effectiveness of simulator-based education of Eco-driving skills. It also is encouraging for similar driving skills that can have a significant effect on traffic safety. While there is encouraging evidence for reducing the cost of driver education at the same time the students learning is enhanced.
