Facility

Simulators

The lab contains three different setups for simulation from Realtime Technologies, Inc. (RTI). These include:

  1. A fully-instrumented vehicle cab mounted on a 6 degree-of-freedom MOOG 2000e motion base, with a 260° front-projection cylindrical edge-blended screen and three high-resolution projectors
  2. A turntable drive-on setup for testing full vehicles with a single front-projection screen
  3. A desktop simulator for creating and troubleshooting driving scenarios

Software

All setups feature RTI’s SimCreator™ and SimVista™ software systems for controlling the system and creating driving scenarios, including a Motion Drive algorithm for motion base control and multibody dynamics editing software.

Physiological measurements

A SmartEye Pro 3-camera eye-tracking system provides measures of gaze and head direction, eyelid opening, blink rate, and pupillometry.  BIOPAC Systems MP150WSW wireless interfaces allow the measurement of blood pressure, ECG, respiration, GSR, and fNIR brain imaging.
