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
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.
Still 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
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
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 object.
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
RTI’s on road
driving simulator leads the industry in the ease with which you can
create driving environments and scenario content.
