Title

Development of personal computer based driving simulator for education to prevent drunk driving

Abstract

"The purpose of this thesis work is to perform the initial development of PC-based virtual reality driving simulator that can be used as a tool to educate people, especially college and high school students, about the consequences of drunk driving. The developed system consists of real-time vehicle dynamics, hardware control interface, force feedback, test environments and driving evaluation. It simulates the control lag and employs specially designed testing and evaluation techniques. Testing of this has been carried out on students and the results are presented."--Abstract, leaf iii.
