Abstract : A videodisc-based driving procedures training system is under development by General Dynamics Electronics Division for the United States Marine Corps that will provide training for drivers of the new LVT-7 A1 tracked landing vehicle. This new system, to be delivered in March of 1984, will provide training and practice to new drivers in correct vehicle operation before they drive an actual vehicle. The system is designed to train 750 students each year in classes of 30 students each. The LCDT consists of a minicomputer with a master control console, five instructor consoles, and five student stations that replicate the driver's compartment of the LVT-7 A1. (Author)
