Motion Simulation Laboratory

The Motion Simulation Laboratory is a marquee SSISTL research and training facility. The lab serves researchers and educators for the implementation of modeling and simulation in transportation Systems. Here we custom design ground, air and hybrid vehicle simulations for emerging applications in: clinical research (vulnerable driving populations), STEM/education and training (experiential learning), human factors analysis (driver distractions), and next-generation transportation studies (autonomous vehicles and flying cars).
