Drive Square Driving Simulator
The Drive Square Simulation System™ is a driving simulator that enables a trainee to drive in a virtual space, while operating the controls of an actual vehicle. Using his/her own or an instructor’s vehicle, the client drives onto a pair of turntables. Simulator sensors and actuators are quickly and non-invasively clipped on to the pedals and other applicable controls. A 360° panoramic view of the road and surrounding area is presented to the trainee via virtual reality goggles, the Head-Mounted Display (HMD). The scenery is computer-generated by a virtual reality simulation software running on the simulator’s portable computer. The software receives data from the wheels and pedals of the vehicle to provide an extremely interactive experience recreating various driving situations. The driving simulator sets up in under 20 minutes at any parking space, providing a portable, cost-effective and easy-to-use driver training solution.
