The School of Transportation Engineering of TONGJI University (Shanghai, China) selects OKTAL

The School of Transportation Engineering of TONGJI University (Shanghai, China) selects OKTAL as the supplier for the Traveller Behaviour and Traffic Safety Simulation Platform (TBTSSP), May4th, 2009

OKTAL announced the sale of a new advanced driving simulator to TONGJI University. The TBTSSP will be the most realistic driving simulator in China and will cope with the key research programs both in road engineering and traffic engineering. The TBTSSP will be open to the world and cooperate with other similar Labs worldwide.

This driving simulator will host a 8 DoF motion system (6 DoF + Table XY), a full car embedded into a dome and a large field of view visualisation system (more than 250°). The new generation of SCANeRTM software, SCANeRTMstudio, will drive the complete system, allowing reduced time to create realistic driving scenarios, driver immersion in a controlled virtual and highly realistic environment and improved experimental data collection and analysis.

The research fields that TBTSSP will address are as follows: Drivers' reaction under complicated driving conditions, Road facilities features and drivers' psychology and behaviour, Driving circumstances and drivers' psychology and behaviour, and Man-machine interface and drivers' psychology and behaviour.
