The vehicle simulator described is used in the laboratory to study problems associated with driving under different conditions. The investigation was carried out at the National Swedish Road and Traffic Research Institute and is sponsored by the National Swedish Council on Road Safety. The purpose of the investigation was to give a background to the construction of a vehicle simulator at the institute, using a literature survey on existing vehicle simulators and associated problems. The report contains a survey of motives for using vehicle simulators, suitable research areas, general description, descriptions of systems for visual display, systems for simulation of forces of inertia, safety systems and specific data as well as descriptions of vehicle simulators in use or planned. /TRRL/
