Full Cab Driving Simulators

On-Road Driving Research Simulator

RDS-2000 Full Cab

Realtime Technologies’ RDS-2000 Full Cab Simulator is a turn-key driving simulation platform that can be applied to research, training, or automotive product development programs. Our modular, scalable system design means you can build from your original simulator design, adding components and avoiding the need to replace your entire simulator as your fidelity requirements increase.

Simulator Features

RDS-2000

For the ultimate research driving simulation experience, step into the RDS-2000 full-size cab simulator. This full-scale cab has all the features you would find in a real vehicle. All the driving components can be linked directly to the Realtime Technologies’ software providing realistic driver feedback and accurate data collection. The fully instrumented vehicle cabin allows for a more life-like experience that will, in-turn, give you the data needed for your research.

Dynamics

Fast, accurate vehicle dynamics are the cornerstone of any high-performance driving simulation platform. Realtime Technologies driving simulator comes complete with a dynamics model of your choice of compact, mid-size, full-size passenger car, sports utility passenger vehicle, van or pickup truck. Large truck and bus models are also available upon request. All of Realtime Technologies dynamics models support accurate modeling vehicle response to a given set of conditions.

Visuals

The quality of visual graphics directly affects a user’s ability to become immersed in the virtual environment. Our simulator supports visual effects such as fog, rain, dynamic shadows, headlights, deformable terrain, ambient lighting models, and pre-rendered light maps.

Cabs

Each Realtime Technologies driving simulator is a modified productive vehicle cab carefully crafted to meet your research requirements.

Typically, a production mid-size or compact passenger vehicle is modified to remove powertrain components while electronic instrumentation is added to allow communication with the simulator. The result is a real vehicle that interacts seamlessly with the simulation.

Audio

Realtime Technologies’ audio subsystem supports spatialized audio presentation. The ambient vehicle noises include engine, transmission, wind and tire noise. In addition, sounds can be localized to a specific location or object.

Motion (Optional)

Realtime Technologies’ driving simulator is motion-compatible. Both 6DOF and 3DOF low profile motion solutions can be added to your driving simulator to provide fast, smooth, and accurate motion cueing.

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.
