The Drivesharp brain training program takes a unique approach to driving safety. It is not a driving simulation or education program. Instead, it sharpens the most important safety equipment of all: the mind of the driver.
Driving safely and confidently requires fast visual processing. While the eyes absorb a visual scene through the windshield, it’s the brain’s job to make sense of that scene and decide how to respond to it. Often, a few milliseconds can make the difference between spotting a bicyclist in time to avoid them, getting off at the right freeway exit and missing it, or stopping in time to avoid a collision with another car.
The two visual processing exercises in Drivesharp help your brain take in more with every glance so you can react faster. These exercises increase your processing speed (so you can react quicker), enlarge your field of view (so you see dangers sooner),1 and give you practice tracking multiple moving objects (like cars, trucks, and pedestrians).
The brain’s role in driving is so important that brain speed and field of view are actually proven to be better predictors of crash risk than the eye chart exam required by the Department of Motor Vehicles.2
