Simulator Features

  • Optional real mirrors provide additional training opportunities. Using the rearward visuals, as projected by the rear displays and observed in rearview mirrors, allows the student to parallax as required in real life. With parallax, the driver can lean forward/back in the seat to change the visual perspective. Enhances training for proper backing exercises, lane clearing, and blind spots.

    environment the students will interact with in real life.
