Driving Simulator Validation Study

This paper describes how Johnson Controls, Inc. has a developed a driving simulator and there are no other simulators with the same capacity in the driving industry. Before this virtual reality tool could be applied to seat comfort development initiatives, it was necessary to demonstrate, through a series of investigations, an acceptable level of fidelity (sensory realism) and validity (as compared to real world driving). This paper describes this study and demonstrates that there are no significant differences between an actual and simulated ride and drive using a 23-item survey. Based on this evidence, the driving simulator was incorporated into the product development process.
