Driving simulators blog

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.

Some simulators are designed for driver training while other simulators are made for doing behavioural research into car driving.
