Advanced driving simulator in Sweden2011-07-14
The Group uses driving simulators primarily to analyse how drivers react in different critical situations.
Perhaps the most important characteristic of this new and advanced simulator is that it produces an authentic, real-life feeling when braking and during large movements of the steering wheel. It also improves the opportunity to create and study situations in current and future traffic environments.
This simulator can be used in the development of braking and steering systems, for example, to enable both safer and more effective vehicle concepts. It can also be used to study the best way for vehicles to pass on information and warnings of different kinds to the driver. In the longer term, the simulator will be used to develop advanced vehicles that are able to communicate with other vehicles, road users and traffic environments.
“It would be difficult to find more advanced safety developments anywhere else in the world,” says Urban Wass.
