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.

Simulator Features


The Desktop Driving Simulator product comes complete with high-performance PC, 22″ LCD monitor, 900 degree rotation PC game steering wheel and pedals, and PC speaker system.

The extra freedom of rotation more closely maps inputs from the game wheel steering to real vehicle steering inputs.The system can be mounted on just about any desk top workspace. The result is a small footprint, portable driving simulator that is perfect for engineering laboratory settings, and research and training applications. Multiple monitors are also offered as an option if you want to enhance the peripheral perspective of your simulation.

Desktop Driving Simulator Demonstration


The Desktop Driving Simulator is powered by SimVehicleLT, the same SimCreator product that Realtime Technologies delivers in its high-end research and training simulators. SimVehicleLT is a high-fidelity multibody, real time vehicle dynamics model. SimVehicleLT 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.

On-Road Driving Simulator Graphic


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.

The realism you feel from driving in the simulator is not only from the visual systems but also from the feedback that you get from the steering wheel. The vehicle dynamics are modeled very accurately. It really does feel like it is state-of-the-art technology.
