Simulation for Research

Your research is only as good as your model. Realtime Technologies specializes in building world-class simulators for driving research. These bring together multi-body vehicle dynamics, stunning graphical simulation, and precise vehicle and environment modeling. Our end-to-end customer-for-life approach encompasses custom simulation and engineering solutions, consulting services, and hardware/software development.

Realtime Technologies modular, scalable hardware/software solutions make it easy to build onto your simulation as your research expands or changes direction:

“Being able to expand the system … [and] program our own algorithms, and to use it for any study that we can think of [is vital] … The realism you feel from driving in the simulator is not only from the visual systems, but also from the feedback you get from the steering wheel. The vehicle dynamics are modeled very accurately. … The face validity of that is very important to the research projects that will be conducted in this lab.” — Jason Rogers, Computer Applications Coordinator, University of Florida

Our current research partners are working in a wide range of fields, from connected and autonomous vehicle technology and traffic engineering, to human/vehicle interaction, occupational therapy, optometry, and psychology. Their projects encompass everything from autonomous and semi-autonomous driving scenarios to the practicalities of driver screening and assessment. Their research into rehabilitation/retraining protocols improves the quality-of-life for countless individuals on a daily basis, including returning combat vets, older drivers, and teens diagnosed with ASD/ADHD.

FAAC embraces a “Customer for Life” philosophy: We invest the time up front to understand your needs, then work with you to develop, deliver, and maintain the appropriate hardware/software solution. As your research evolves, so will your simulation solution.

We don’t sell equipment; we partner with research organizations to develop and create the ideal toolset for their work.

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.
