In this driving simulator blog I will explain the purpose and advantages of a driving simulator. Driving simulators come in all kinds of varieties.
They range from low end to high end. Low end simulators are usually desktop simulators that consist of a computer, 1 to 4 monitors for rendering of the simulations, and a set of steering wheel plus pedals and possibly other actuators. High end simulators typically have a cockpit with a car seat and usually a motion platform to simulate realistic motions. There’s a large price difference between the two: low end systems cost between 5000 and 20000 euro. High end systems may cost over a mlillion euro.
