The FORUM8 Drive Simulators benefit from the comprehensive 3D visual and interactive attributes of VR-Design Studio. The software allows users to create driving scenarios and re-create them with complete control of all environmental conditions, as well as being able to set individual vehicle dynamics from either within VR-Design Studio or in collaboration with such 3rd party products like CarSim or TruckSim.
FORUM8 Drive Simulators are used widely for human factors research, vehicle development and research, driver training and many other aspects of road safety research and training.
Driving Simulators range from basic desk-top units (VR-Drive), to multi-million dollar hexapod systems, with up to 8 degrees of freedom.
In addition, FORUM8 can supply other hardware simulators including both for both rail and ship simulations. Please ask for more details firstname.lastname@example.org
VR-Drive a low cost PC based driving simulator with many applications.
The Multi User Client Version run on each Client PC within a computer cluster is used simultaneously with the VR-Design Studio software running on the Master PC of the same computer cluster. The coordinate information of each and every object calculated by the Master PC is reflected on the VR-Design Studio environment within each Client PC. The multiple screens being synchronized with the Master PC, thereby allowing users on each Client PC to drive at the same time within the same environment.
A pre-built driver training environment, built by the FORUM8 US based Partner VSAT, is available in a number of forms
This Driver training environment can be used as it is or it can be developed to include additional highways, tunnels, bridges, crossings etc as well as new scenarios and emergency driving situations by using the user friendly features of VR-Design Studio.
