Widely adopted by health care professionals and researchers across many fields, DriveSafety simulators deliver exceptional fidelity, usability and value. Our solutions combine state-of-the-art simulation technology with user-inspired tools that empower our customers to address a wide range of factors relating to driving.
Veteran and active military medical centers, private hospitals and clinics use DriveSafety simulators to enhance the cognitive, visual and physical functioning of a broad range of patients. The company’s simulation-based tools improve patient outcomes not only in the specialized area of driving rehabilitation, but also in general therapeutic care of patients who have suffered functional losses that impact their independence and mobility.
DriveSafety’s RS research driving simulators allow researchers to create custom driving scenarios leveraging an extensive library of roads, intersections, cultural surroundings, traffic vehicles, pedestrian and other entities. Users can easily define environmental and traffic conditions, including triggered events and behaviors for the driver to experience or respond to during the drive. The simulators also provide powerful, flexible data collection tools that allow researchers to tailor performance measures and data capture to the needs of their study. Fields of use include traffic safety, vehicle and roadway design, driver distraction, human interface design, driver assistance and information systems, and a variety of psychology, human factors and health sciences topics.
Our Most Advanced Research Simulator
The RS 600 is a fully integrated, highly realistic, high-fidelity driving simulation system designed to support the rigorous demands of driving safety research. The RS 600 hardware is combined with the industry’s most advanced scenario authoring tools to provide an ideal environment for Researchers to create purpose-built driving scenarios. Using our scenario authoring and data collection tools, Researchers can create custom driving scenarios and performance measures ideally suited to their experimental needs.
One of DriveSafety’s most important partnerships is with Clemson University’s Center for Automotive Research (CUICAR) and Dr. Johnell Brooks who runs the center and frequently publishes in peer reviewed journals. Dr. Brooks’ most recent article entitled Interactive Tools for Measuring Visual Scanning Performance and Reaction Time was published in the March/April issue of The Journal of Occupational Therapy. DriveSafety simulators were used to conduct the research and are included in the study’s methodology.
(Video Courtesty of Fox 13 Salt Lake City) SALT LAKE CITY — Losing driving privileges can be devastating for senior citizens, but a program at the University of Utah is helping older drivers stay behind the wheel. The driver rehabilitation program at the University of Utah helps older drivers recognize when their driving skills might […]
