Simescar

Car simulator solution

Our Simescar car simulators are a teaching simulation for initial familiarization of users with the general features of a real car.

  • They make drivers feel more confident.
  • They prepare users to react correctly to different situations.
  • They enable users to practise driving in adverse conditions without risk of actual accident.
  • They complement the conventional learning process, adding value to training.
  • They allow concepts to be grasped rapidly in exercises which become progressively more difficult.
  • Assessment of driver skills and development of new skills behind the wheel.
  • Refreshing and updating knowledge and correcting bad habits acquired.

1. Hardware

Ambar cabin

  • Steering column with force feedback and real car steering wheel with height and forwards/backwards adjustment.
  • Real vehicle instruments: horn, indicators, headlights and windscreen wiper controls fitted on steering column.
  • 2.0 sound with earphone jack.
  • Seatbelt with sensors and pretensioner, pedals.
  • Manual 5-speed gearshift. Option for driving with automatic gears during simulation.
  • Three 24” HD display screens.
  • Strong wooden chassis.
  • Forwards/backwards and height adjustment of seat.

Flexible display screen positioning

The Simescar Ambar simulator is a low-immersion simulation solution characterised by its ergonomic design, which allows side display screens to be folded in and out using levers, and is easy to get into and out thanks to 80 cm-wide doors, no need to dismantle screens .

Advanced ergonomics

The advanced ergonomics of adjustment points allow customers to assemble and dismantle the simulator easily, quickly and safely .

Silver cabin

  • Cockpit similar to an original vehicle: control panel, seat, pedals and levers.
  • Real car pedals with vibration motors fitted in each one to recreate ABS effect and clutch bite point.
  • Motion platform on two axes for reproducing sensation of acceleration, braking, taking a curve, different road surfaces, and environmental vibrations.
  • 135° field of vision displayed on three 32” screens and one 10” control panel.
  • 5.1 sound system.
  • Feedback built in to steering wheel and pedals.
  • Seatbelt with sensors.
  • Manual and automatic gearshift.
  • User identification controlled by fingerprint or code.

2. Software

Characteristics of SOFTWARE. Solutions and Real Parameters

Version 1.0 of Simescar Virtual Teaching Plan offers the choice of Free Practice, practising driving during classroom sessions and exercises contained in the Teaching Plan, or driving in a simulator that reproduces the effects of driving with different blood alcohol levels.

  • Variety of scenarios:
    motorway, overtaking, roundabouts, test circuit, urban, mountain pass, junctions.

  • Choice of 3 start points
    and a variety of specific environments in each scenario selected.

  • Driving in weather conditions of adjustable intensity:
    bright sunshine, cloudy, rain and fog.

  • Driving in different lighting conditions:
    dawn, midday, dusk and night-time.

  • Parameters of traffic intensity and aggressiveness can be adjusted during simulation,
    and similarly types of pedestrian appearing in the environment (human, animal, or both).

  • Simulation of drink-driving
    to raise awareness of road safety.

  • Tyre pressure
    Parameters for car load and tyre pressure can be adjusted.

  • Choice of gearbox:
    manual or automatic.

  • Simulation of vehicle faults
    Simulation of vehicle faults or breakdowns, or accidents.

  • Code identification
    Code identification of users to prevent any type of identity fraud.

Version 2.0 of Simescar Virtual Teaching Plan offers the choice of doing a wide variety of exercises which become progressively more difficult, and which can be programmed in beforehand from the Instructor Station.

During the simulation, the Instructor can interact in real time with the pupil, changing different parameters of the exercise which affect user driving experience.

  • Variety of scenarios:
    metalled or unmetalled mountain road, motorway, urban and test circuit.

  • Driving in weather conditions of adjustable intensity:
    bright sunshine, cloudy, rain, freezing, hail and snow.

  • Driving in different lighting conditions:
    dawn, midday, dusk and night-time.

  • Changes to driving environment:
    dust cloud, blizzard and fog.

  • Different road surface conditions:
    aquaplaning, potholes or oil spill.

  • Obstacles:
    accident, animals, cyclists, people, emergency vehicles and broken-down vehicle.
