Western Australia is introducing an innovative new app for children to learn about road safety, free for schools and children around the nation. Students interact directly with Augmented Reality characters in risky travel situations identifying safer choices at their own pace. 

Arility app gives children six road safety activities which allow children to see and experience risk through the interactive environment, they have to choose the safest option, which they will be rewarded for.

Safety lessons directly address Australian curriculum outcomes. Comprehensive pre, post and extension questions let you easily assess changes in student knowledge using Arility's detailed individual reporting.

Children in Australia are over-represented in road fatalities and serious injuries, this app will give children the skills to make the right choices to help save their life.

The key road safety experiences in the app provide children aged four to eleven with vital pedestrian, bike and public transport safety skills linked to the school curriculum. Students using the Arility road safety app interact with augmented characters in real-world travel risk situations, and make decisions in order to keep them safe from harm.

David Gribble, CEO of CCCSF, says “Arility is designed to complement traditional road safety education, maximising its effectiveness through gamified learning which keeps students’ attention and increases their knowledge. Arility gives students the opportunity to roleplay high-risk scenarios in a safe way, giving them the best foundations for real-life safe travels.”
