Royal Oak, Michigan – June, 2015
-- Realtime Technologies, Inc. (RTI), a part of Arotech Corporation's (NasdaqGM: ARTX) Training and Simulation
Division, announced today that it has upgraded the hardware and software components for its single-seat open cockpit vehicle simulator.
The simulator, first delivered in 2010 to The Children's Hospital of Philadelphia's Center for Injury Research and Prevention <https://injury.research.chop.edu>
for use in studying teen driver behavior, will now benefit from innovations made by RTI to enhance the realism of the simulated driving experience.
These upgrades are an acknowledgement of RTI's ability to further sustain its customers' expectations for both hardware and software. With a customer-for-life approach, RTI is able
to build a relationship with its customers that extend beyond the procurement.
Simulator Delivered by RTI (2010)
Scientists from CHOP recently developed and validated simulator software for driving skill assessment using Realtime's equipment. <https://injury.research.chop.edu/node/884#.VXYL3GRVikq>
When asked about the continued support of Children's, RTI President Richard Romano said, "CHOP is doing incredible research that we all hope will reduce injuries and fatalities for teen and novice drivers.
CHOP's development of the Simulated Driving Assessment should go a long way towards this goal. We are very happy to be involved in this work."
The recent upgrade included RTI's newest release of SimCreator V3.0. This major release allows users to operate SimCreator on computers loaded with Windows 7. By upgrading visual channels, host,
and SimObserver computers, customers can leverage the increased performance while sustaining the longevity of the product.
Having a long-term customer allows RTI the opportunity to continually evaluate the system the simulator operates in. RTI is able to proactively engage its customers, ensuring continued performance
of their simulator. For RTI, this upgrade displays the balance of providing a quality product and sustaining its life cycle.
Simulator Software and Hardware
Software updates included RTI's newest version of SimCreator, V3.0. With this update, the users will see a large
improvement in performance along with minor updates throughout. Two primary features of SimCreator V3.0 are its ability
to run on Windows 7 and Visual Studio 2010 for compiling.
Hardware upgrades included three Rave Computer's with the latest NVIDIA Graphics Card and Intel's 5th Generation i7
Processors. Per RTI standards, computers are 4U Rackmount and must operate at a sound level whisper of 32dB or lower.
