This work presents an intelligent virtual reality environment for training child traffic safety. Key pedestrian skills are discussed. The overall system design is described together with a set of implemented practical exercises. An evaluation study shows that the approach is well accepted and that children struggle with the same skills in the virtual environment as in the real world.
