Desktop Driving Simulator for Research
Realtime Technologies’ Desktop Driving Simulator brings the performance of mid- to high-fidelity simulators to a compact, inexpensive package. Using Realtime Technologies’ flagship SimCreator® product, complex simulation models are scaled and targeted to run on a single high-performance PC platform. Now, all the features traditionally reserved for expensive, high-end simulators are within reach to those with a more modest budget. SimCreator also makes it easy to interface other applications into the simulator for test and development tasks.
The RDS-100 Desktop Driving Simulator brings the performance of mid to high-fidelity simulators into a compact lower fidelity package. Using Realtime Technologies’ core software, built from SimCreator, complex simulations are run on a high-performance PC platform. Now, the features traditionally reserved for expensive, high-end simulators are within reach to those with a more modest budget.
The Desktop Driving Simulator is powered by SimVehicle, the same SimCreator product that Realtime Technologies delivers in its high-end research and training simulators. SimVehicle is a high-fidelity multibody, real-time vehicle dynamics model. SimVehicle provides accurate vehicle responses to the driving environment. The simulator operates at a 60 Hz update rate and supplies fantastic, high-quality graphics and audio cues.
The Desktop Driving Simulator can be delivered with stand-alone databases complete with an ambient traffic model or with customized simulation scenarios. Stand-alone databases exist for freeway, city, and off-road driving. Customized scenarios can be developed with Realtime Technologies’ SimVista scene and scenario development toolset.
