UConn To Study Self-Driving Cars With New Realtime Technologies Simulator

A Michigan technology company rebuilt the 2014 midsize sedan into a full-scale driving simulator for UConn, one of just a few schools in the country to have one.

“We’re able to really trying to push the limits and boundaries of existing technology purely through simulation to allow people to experience what the future of driving may be like 10 years down the road,” says Eric Jackson, an assistant professor of engineering and director of UConn’s Connecticut Transportation Safety Research Center.

The simulator hails from a Michigan company called Realtime Technologies. It’s a division of FAAC Incorporated, a business that makes driving simulators, from buses and police cruisers to military combat convoys.

Realtime Technologies has made its full-scale driving simulators for UMass, Ohio State University, the University of Florida and the University of California, Berkeley.
