RANCS research lab sponsored and supported a capstone project to develop and design a driving simulator.
In this project, students designed and developed a portable, light weighted driving simulator. The designed simulator will be used for teaching (courses such as introduction to autonomous vehicles and control systems) and research purposes. The simulator will be used for training drivers with special needs (it is designed to be integrated with the C A R E N – Computer Assisted Rehabilitation Environment System which is a virtual reality system with a motion capture system, and a 6-degree of freedom actuated base). In addition, the developed driving simulator will be used for testing and verifying the safety of connected and autonomous vehicles.
