The simRING is a full 6 degree-of-freedom motion-based driving simulator that features the front end of a car mounted on a moving platform that emulates the real-life motions of a car as it reacts to turns, changes in elevation, and other road conditions.
The simRING features a 360-degree, 16-foot diameter, 6’ high screen that fully surrounds the simulator vehicle, which provides the driver with a full-fidelity depiction of surrounding traffic, landmarks, and roadway conditions. The system likewise features high-fidelity on-board controls to navigate the simulator, as well as a stereo sound system that emulates noises heard inside and outside the vehicle during a driving excursion.
