The simulator has 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 are two LCD displays representing the right and left outside mirror. The interior mirror reflects a LCD display positioned in the trunk of the mock-up showing the scenery behind the vehicle.

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

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

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