The DriveSafety RS 250 simulator was developed specifically to help researchers measure responses to driving-related stimuli. Researchers engaged in driving studies can use the RS 250 to enhance and document their findings. Unmatched in the industry for its fidelity, face validity, research-oriented features, the RS 250 incorporates many of the capabilities of the RS-250 simulator but is tailored specifically for laboratory environments with smaller footprint requirements. Drivers sit in a partial cab based on a Ford Focus sedan and are immersed in an authentic automotive environment with simulated driving scenarios and ambient traffic sounds.
With our DriveSafety research simulator we have virtually limitless options for testing behaviors in just about any kind of scenario. The complexities of driving are well known. The simulator has helped us uncover and then document those complexities with a high degree of accuracy.
A Complete Simulated Driving System
With the RS 250, drivers sit in a partial cab based on a Ford Focus sedan and are immersed in an authentic automotive environment with simulated driving scenarios and ambient traffic. The system comes with a transfer frame to help patients practice getting in and out of a vehicle. The operator interface is easy for clinicians to use from a dedicated touchscreen tablet that ships with the system.
The RS 250 can ship with optional adaptive equipment, including hand controls, a spinner knob and a left-foot accelerator. Larger, more immersive display systems as well as motion cueing are also available with the RS 250, if desired.
Dimensions: 4′ L x 3′ W
Weight ~ 250 lbs (113kg)
Power Requirements – (1) 20 Amp 115 Volt AC circuit
Operating Temperature – 50°F to 104°F (10°C to 40°C)
DriveSafety’s RS research driving simulators are combined with our own HyperDrive Authoring Suite, an advanced scenario-authoring tool. The suite allows researchers to create custom driving scenarios leveraging an extensive library of roads, intersections, cultural surroundings, traffic vehicles, pedestrians and other elements along with flexible scripting capabilities. The system also includes powerful real-time data collection and performance monitoring functions users can customize to suit the specific needs of their studies.
