Theory Test Changes – Case Study changes from Still Images to CGI clips

Jellylearn is excited that the CGI clips it developed for the new case studies section of the Theory Test went live last month. It is further evidence of the use of this type of technology to test a candidates ability to understand road scenarios as viewed from a different perspective. The benefit of using CGI is that the same clip can be viewed from multiple angles which provides road safety experts with the ability to ask multiple questions about a scenario. https://www.gov.uk/government/news/theory-test-changes-28-september-2020...

Jellylearn's adverse weather clips included in the updated driving theory test

The DVSA has announced the inclusion of computer-generated clips (CGI) developed by Jellylearn of snow, wind, rain and other adverse weather conditions as part of the ongoing development of the driving theory test. With 16,406 accidents in rain, sleet, snow or fog on Britain's roads in 2017, including 205 fatal incidents, the DVSA commissioned Jellylearn to develop these highly visual and accurate clips for the hazard perception part of the test to improve safety on the road. The objective is to provide more realistic driving conditions to tes...

RAC Foundation funds exciting new research project into use of VR for road safety testing and traini

The RAC Foundation have commissioned Jellylearn and Nottingham Trent University (NTU) to undertake a unique research project about the pros and cons of using Virtual Reality (VR) v non VR for hazard perception testing and training content. NTU will be the lead on the project with Jellylearn developing a 360 degree 10 minute long CGI clip depicting various types of road hazards based on the same format and fidelity as the current HP test as used by the DVSA, who incidentally, will also be contributing valuable resources to the project. T...

Jellylearn presents at CIECA 50th Annual General Meeting in Belfast

Jellylearn (JL), in conjunction with Nottingham Trent University (NTU), presented the results of a unique research project into the potential benefits of combining the existing UK theory and hazard perception tests into a continuous journey using a 10 minute CGI test clip that (JL) had developed as a proof of concept. The theory questions and hazards were presented to the candidate randomly during the journey which was based on urban road conditions and surrounding environment. The results from the research project managed by Professor Davi...

Jellylearn awarded a research grant from Department for Transport (DfT)

Earlier this year, in conjunction with NTU as the lead on this project, we were awarded a grant from Department for Transport (DfT) who were seeking proposals for an innovative technology solution to engage learner and young drivers and encourage and enable them to develop their skills of recognising hazards on the road in a variety of environments and conditions. Our proposal included a continuous 10 minute clip, produced using 3d animation that contained both theory questions and hazard perception in one single journey. This will then be...

CIECA 2017 - Trondheim ,Norway

We attended the annual congress again in June this year which was held in Trondheim ,Norway. Representatives from around the world met to discuss ways to improve the quality of driver licencing, education services and road safety and share their real world experiences on a range of topics. This year we demonstrated our hazard perception clips in a 360 virtual world as if you were actually sitting in the car and you could see everything around you. This was made possible by augmenting our clips and using a VR headset and a smart phone. F...

Five.AI commission Jellylearn

Recently Five.ai approached us to develop some 3d clips that they could use in presentations to potential investors. The purpose of producing these clips was to demonstrate the challenges they are facing in developing the software systems that will manage future autonomous vehicles, especially in urban environments. We produced several clips showing multiple hazards that highlighted such challenges as detecting vehicle reflections in shop windows and road surface water, how to handle strong sunlight when the glare makes it impossible to see...

Jellylearn talk to Peter Weddell-Hall

Peter retired recently from the DVSA having spent 10 years as the Head of E-Assessment and Training Accreditation. In that role Peter was pivotal in the introduction of a new theory test and the ground breaking project of rolling out the worlds first video based hazard perception test (HPT) which formed part of UK driving test. We caught up with Peter to ask him about road safety in the UK and what trends he sees in the future that would bring about increased road safety on a more global basis. What prompted the DSA back in 1998 to co...
