This paper describes the design and development of the Ford Driving Simulator. The simulator is a fixed-base device which provides real-time, interactive feedback to the driver through a combination of visual, auditory and tactile cues. The system is comprised of a modular buck, 150° field-of-view visual scene, a steering torque controller, high fidelity dynamics models, and an interactive experimenters station. Data acquisition systems have been developed to capture a broad spectrum of driver performance metrics.
