“The driving simulation software SILAB® (version 6.0) was used for environment visualization as well as for simulation of the CAD system, traffic and vehicle dynamics.

An Opel Insignia Sports Tourer was used as mock-up of the driving simulator.

The simulator had a 300° horizontal and 47° vertical field of vision, with five image channels, each one with a resolution of 1400×1050 pixels. The update frequency was 60 Hz. In addition, there were two LCD displays representing the right and left outside mirror. The interior mirror reflected a LCD display positioned in the trunk of the mock-up showing the scenery behind the vehicle.

During the experimental drives, the experimenter was able to observe and communicate with the participant via intercom.”
