Driving Simulators for the Evaluation of Human-Machine Interfaces in Assisted and Automated Vehicles
Driving Simulators for the Evaluation of Human-Machine Interfaces in Assisted and Automated Vehicles is a concise reference work on driving simulators, which conveys the technology behind simulator systems used to test driver assistance systems and automated vehicles, including electric vehicles. Coverage includes architecture, computer graphics, evaluation parameters and applied examples.
A driving simulator is a device that has the function of presenting similar visual, auditory and force perceptions to those experienced during driving, creating the illusion that the driver is driving an actual car. The advantage of tests using a driving simulator is that it can reproduce dangerous traffic situations and tests safely. Driving simulators are also valuable in research and development into intelligent driving systems, allowing for testing and evaluation in a simulation environment rather than on the road.
With its concise selection of relevant material and applied focus, this book will be of use to research and development professionals in industry and academic researchers whose work involves automotive systems and technologies in general, and particularly those working on driving simulators and automated driving.
