In a simulation, the quality of visual graphics directly affects a
user's ability to become immersed in the virtual environment. Our
simulator supports visual effects such as fog, rain, dynamic shadows,
headlights, deformable terrain, ambient lighting models, and
pre-rendered light maps.
SimVista Scene and Scenario Control
All the tools you need to author your own simulation scenarios are
available with SimVista, RTI's scene and scenario control subsystem.
The SimVista graphical user interface
(GUI) gives you the power to drag and drop objects into your virtual
world and to give them scripted behaviors, bringing them to life.
SimVista comes complete with pallets of objects that can be placed in
the scene. It also includes set of tiles that can be arranged within
SimVista to make a seamless driving environment. Other objects that can
be dragged off a palette and added to enhance the visual complexity of
the scene include buildings, trees, parked vehicles, terrain features,
signs, and construction barriers among many others.
more objects such as sensors, vehicles, and pedestrians can be
introduced and assigned behaviors that will play out during scenario
execution. With SimVista you can regulate nearly all aspects of virtual
traffic, pedestrian movements and simulator operation.
RTI’s driving simulator comes complete with a modified production
vehicle cab. The cab can be developed to specifications that match your
budget and facilities requirements.
Typically, a production mid-size or
compact passenger vehicle is modified to remove powertrain components
while electronic instrumentation is added to allow communication with
the simulator. The result is a real vehicle that interacts seamlessly
with the simulation. Both full vehicle or front half cabs are available.
A high-fidelity control loading system provides feedback on the steering
wheel that is directly coupled with the vehicle dynamics at 2000 Hz.
Important factors such as power steering boost curves, and tire aligning
torque are included in the steering model. You configure the steering
feedback to represent the vehicle you're simulating.
The visual display configuration options on RTI’s driving simulator are
plentiful. You can make use of CRT monitors, plasma monitors, CRT, LCD,
or DLP projectors in a front or rear projection configuration. Field of
view, resolution, vertical and horizontal offsets, and aspect ratios can
be independently configured on a per-channel basis. A typical simulator
makes use of 180° forward field of view front projection with optional
LCD panel rear view mirrors.
RTI’s audio subsystem supports spatialized audio presentation. The
ambient vehicle noises include engine, transmission, wind and tire
noise. In addition, sounds can be localized to a specific location or
RTI’s driving simulator is fully motion compatible. Both 6DOF and 3DOF
low profile motion solutions can be added to your driving simulator to
provide fast, smooth, and accurate motion cueing.
RTI’s on road driving
simulator leads the industry in the ease with which you can create
driving environments and scenario content.
