Currently under development at our customer VESC is a Tractor Simulator. Just like a flight simulator only with the cabin of a tractor this simulator is build for driving lessons. Students will be able to use the simulator for their first lessons. They will drive through a virtual world in which they encounter different traffic situations from which they will learn in a controlled environment.
SUA assists VESC in the development of the software for the simulation platform and mathematical models behind this simulator. To realize this we are developing semi real-time code in C++ for a Linux platform. The goal of the simulation platform is to connect the different components of the simulator such as the motion platform, dynamic models of the vehicle and the graphical renderings.
