Many times people afraid to go to new places. For example, the first day in a new school could be so frightening that the student stays at home. Or students may have problems with perception. Then students need solutions on how to find the right places, how to act for example in a cafeteria. With the specific technology, they can train orienteering in a new area, shopping in a store or traveling from one place to another before they actually went there.
