Team O’Neil Rally School Uses Simulation to Enable Driver Training

January 2012 – Team O’Neil Rally School and Car Control Center has recently partnered with the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers to develop and implement the best synthetic driver skills training possible. Team O’Neil, long known for rally car driver training, offers a safe driving environment for students to learn to be better drivers and improve their responses to a variety of less than perfect driving scenarios. Students learn skid control, accident avoidance, and vehicle dynamics. The Army Corps of Engineering  Synthetic Automotive Virtual Environments (SAVE) project is designed to perform research in high-speed, loose-surface vehicles, tires, human dynamics; and to apply understanding to dynamic stability control systems, autonomous systems, tire-deformable road design, and ultimately to driver skills training.  The ultimate goal is to reduce the cost and number of motor vehicle accidents within the U.S. Military and nationwide.  Team O’Neil soon partnered with Realtime Technologies, Inc. (and other hardware specialists) to provide a simulator to support the SAVE project.  (Read More)
