Robust, Long Haul, Distributed, Research Driving Simulation

Supervisor: Professor Richard Romano

Description: Driving simulators have been used for human factors research and vehicle design for several decades.  In addition, distributed driving simulators have been used in training for a similar time period.  With the emergence of new vehicle and infrastructure technologies and methods to improve safety and reduce congestion such as Connected Vehicles (CV), Advanced Driver Assistance Systems (ADAS) and the potential deployment of Autonomous Vehicles (AV), research driving simulators need to be integrated into a distributed framework.  This framework will allow research with multiple drivers which is important when comparing the impact of new technologies with the existing driving environment.
