Description

"SimuRide - The Driving Simulator" is an interactive, three dimensional computer program that allows users to experience driving in a safe and controlled environment. If you've never driven before and have just started learning, or if you've driven for years but want to learn how to drive a different kind of vehicle, like a manual or commercial vehicle; SimuRide is the system for you.

With controls that function and respond the same way a real vehicle does, complimented with a panoramic, 3-d virtual environment, SimuRide offers users a venue to practice their driving, before they get behind the wheel for real. Not only is this an economical savings on gas and vehicle maintenance, but it also safe guards lives, as there are no pedestrians in the simulated environment that can be hurt by an inexperienced driver.

Likewise, the user wont be hurt if the simulated vehicle is damaged or totaled. SimuRide has a wide variety of locations and settings that allow the users to drive various types of vehicles under a multitude of conditions. Users can practice winter skid control, night time driving, driving through heavy fog and much more, all from the comfort of a driving instructional facility or school. There is even a single monitor version of SimuRide available for those that wish to use the system at home.

SimuRide is affordable, whether it’s for professional instruction use at a driving school, utilizing the panoramic, three monitor setup; or if you’re using the single monitor version at home on your PC or laptop.

Upgrade

Updates for All SimuRide PE Editions from 2008 up to today.

Professional Driving Simulator Configurations

Our SimuRide driving simulator is meant for use in

It can work with up to four computer screens using a single computer.

Installing the software to work with two-pedal or three-pedal components, a gear shifter console, and a steering wheel allows the student driver to learn and gain the experience of driving without being inside an actual car.

The steering wheel turns 900 degrees and provides resistance during driving maneuvers.

All these components are available from our online store separately or provided in a full/small setup package. Please read below for details.

Driving Simulator Setup

New driving simulator users can reference our instructional videos shared here to help you configure SimuRide Professional based on the settings and configurations that best suit your operational needs.

Our driving simulation can be configured to run on 1, 2, 3, or 4 monitors with each added display expanding the panoramic view of the simulated environment which provides your student driver with a full virtual driving experience.

 

 

 

 

 

 

Benefits

Using SimuRide driving simulator instead of learning to drive from behind an  actual steering wheel has many benefit:

SimuRide driving simulator represents a good investment for driving schools. At only $800 SimuRide PE is much more economical than other driving simulation tools and instruments on the market today; it is the least expensive alternative on the market, and at a comparable quality.

The three-pedal component with gear shifter console allows the user to change gears manually, recording any clutch related error in the report. For trucks, the double clutching method can be selected, where forgetting a double clutch, an increase in RPMs in neutral during a down shift, more than 50% clutch pedal pressure while up/down shifting, or too low/high RPMs will display an error message immediately.

The driving simulation software is specially designed, so that, for example, the user will feel resistance on the steering wheel during turning maneuvers and tremors when the vehicle hits the curb or reaches the road shoulder. Rear-view and side-view mirrors, blind spot view together with the aerial-view are simulated, to help performing parallel parking or other activities requiring such views.
Truck-driver students can easily practice driving a semi truck in city traffic, taking wide turns or backing up a long straight road to the dock. 
The visual scenes reproduce city, highway, country, maze and maneuvering lot environments, with or without traffic and with different obstacles.
To increase the difficulty level, various atmospheric conditions can be applied. 
Realistic sound is correlated with road conditions, engine RPM and speed.

The multi-display upgrade allows users to run and view the SimuRide driving simulator application across three monitors generating a 180-degree horizontal view. This feature forces the student to turn his or her head and realistically imitates the driving environment.

 

Hardware Requirements

The SimuRide PE driving simulator small package can be run on a personal computer (desktop or laptop).

Minimum Computer

Steering Wheel

The Logitech G29 Steering Wheel offers incredibly precise driving control with dual-motor force feedback, 900-degree steering and a six-speed gated shifter.

Premium materials are used throughout: stainless steel paddle shifters and pedals, soft leather grip surfaces, and brushed metal wheel spoke accents.

The 11-inch wheel, dual force-feedback motors and metal-framed pedal assembly provide solid road feel where you want it, and the 14 programmable buttons and sequential shifting option provide flexibility when you need it.

Includes: Steering Wheel, Shifter Module, Gas, Brake, and Clutch Pedals; Power Supply, User Documentation and Software CD.

Six-speed shifter with push-down reverse gear provides a more realistic driving experience with manual transmissions – allows the user to easily select the appropriate gear for any corner.

Dual-motor force feedback system – two motors for increased force strength, single-reduction anti-backlash gearing system for decreased noise, smoother, more accurate steering and higher force feedback fidelity.
900 Degrees of Wheel Rotation – 2.5 turns lock-to-lock – just like most real cars.

11″, leather-wrapped wheel rim with stainless steel spokes – real leather and a wide diameter.
Sequential shift mode for programs that do not support six-speed mode, the shifter can easily be changed into sequential mode.

Stainless steel gas, brake, and clutch pedals – gas, brake, and clutch pedals with distinct resistances. The addition of a clutch pedal allows for advanced driving techniques such as heel-and- toe downshifting. Leather-wrapped shift knob & exclusive carpet grip system.
For warranty and additional information about the steering wheel please click here.

Screen

Any modern standard wall projector, monitor or TV can be used.

To realistically imitate the driving environment we suggest using three-monitor SIMURIDE edition with panoramic flat screen monitors at least 22″/ max 32″, HD-TVs or wall-projectors.

The computer we are selling on line has 3 monitors output; however, some computers have only one graphics card output. Hence, for three monitors with a simple computer graphics card the Matrox Triplehead2go is required and is available in our On-Line Store.

Driving Simulation Seat & Cockpit:

You can purchase Professional Simulator Seat that holds 3 monitors, steering wheel, pedals, and gear shifter from our On-Line Store.  Please note that we are unable to guarantee the same seat type and color, as pictured.

In an effort to control customer pricing in our current economic climate, we have obtained refurbished seats of excellent quality and condition.

The Simulator Seat is not necessary; you can use the regular office desk with a simple chair.

The SimuRide – Driving Simulator is built on simulation technology developed by EduCar.

Simulator for Police and Fire Department

Simulator functionality specifically related and dedicated to Law Enforcement driving; very helpful supplement for Emergency Vehicle Operations Course (EVOC).

Police Vehicle and Fire Trucks and a Police Academy scenario are included in the SimuRide edition released Feb 03, 2017.

One of the many important tools in a police officer’s skills set is being a safe and effective driver under any potentially dangerous scenario.  Patrol officers can spend a significant portion of their time in their vehicle, and their duties may require them to sometimes perform difficult and dangerous maneuvers under any variety of road conditions or circumstances.  The best way for any officer to obtain these skills is with the use of a driving simulator; where emergency and inclement driving maneuvers can be performed repetitiously, in a safe, controlled environment.  The SimuRide Professional Edition (PE) provides that environment combined with a comprehensive, virtual landscape where neither officer nor vehicle is at risk of injury or damage.  The vehicles in SimuRide do not need fuel, maintenance, or repair, and the officers won’t need hazard pay to practice important maneuvers.  Just as regular practice at the shooting range keeps an officer’s skills sharp; law enforcement can frequently hone their defensive and offensive driving abilities with SimuRide Professional Edition.

Our driving simulator provides officers with an invaluable training resource, where they are able to practice:

The police and emergency vehicle settings are one of many real world-based options that drivers can choose from.  When operating the virtual police squad car, drivers will find the inclusion of added effects to simulate emergency situations like background noise of the police siren and voices over the CB, and all of the normal traffic rules are disabled. Officers, who may need to drive large trucks with manual transmissions during emergency situations, can additionally make use of SimuRide PE’s extensive commercial vehicle options which includes semis and buses with a choice between manual and automatic transmissions.

SimuRide PE may also be used beyond officer training purposes and can be incorporated into prevention/awareness campaigns where citizens can be invited to experience the effects of driving under the influence of alcohol or drugs through delayed control response and altered displays in the simulation which reflects the dangerous changes to the drivers perceptions and reflexes. They can also engage in other reckless driving practices to become more aware of some of the risks they face when making decisions while driving like attempting to drive while texting or talking on a cellphone, traveling at unsafe speeds, or the difficulty of maneuvering on slick roads and in inclement weather.

All simulator sessions performed in SimuRide are closely tracked and recorded with performance review that can be studied after the completion of each session to help the driver identify areas of proficiency and where further practice may be necessary.
Aplusb Software is dedicated to offering effective and innovative education solutions for drivers of all ages and levels of experience. As part of that objective, we have been developing a motion simulator that has just been released. The motion simulator will increase the realism of our driving effects and would help officers keep control of their simulated vehicle in certain scenarios, such as driving over a high bump or hitting the curb.

If there are no funds in your budget for the Emergency Vehicle Operation Training, this shouldn’t be an issue; there are many federal, states and private grants for law enforcement agencies that cover the cost of our SimuRide simulator.
