“The simulator consists of a hexapod providing vestibular and haptic feedback. Sway motion cueing was based on the lateral position, scaled with respect to the width of the three-lane highway with a factor of 0.125. The yaw motion was scaled equally and based on the vehicle heading.
The visual environment was projected on a 210-degree projection screen using three projectors running at 120 Hz.
Furthermore, the cockpit consisted of a driver seat, steering wheel with turn indicator, brake, and accelerator pedals. The force feedback on the steering wheel was provided by a control loader, with a maximum torque of 30 Nm, connected to a dedicated computer running at 1000 Hz.
The Cruden Panthera internal car model was updated at 120 Hz, data was logged at 120 Hz. The integration of traffic into the simulation was done using VIRES virtual test drive software utilising the openDRIVE format.”
