Where The Laboratory Meets The Road

Driving simulators used for highway research range from simple desktop units to large domes that enclose a complete vehicle mounted on a complex, eight-degrees-of-freedom motion platform. Motion platforms add to the realism of the simulation by offering additional motion cues to better simulate real-world driving, immersing drivers in the experimental conditions. However, presenting motion cues that are perceived as realistic to participants in driving simulator research presents numerous challenges. Testing was done on the FHWA highway driving simulator which was recently upgraded with a new hexapod motion base.
