Concept SimCAR 2025
SimCAR technology aims to provide unparalleled automotive driving lessons to the driver. This concept in-car simulator functions when the car is parked and it focuses on promoting safe driving through highly educational and engaging methods. Young drivers between the age of 17-25 represent one-quarter of all fatal road accidents in Australia but are only 10-15% of the licensed driver population.
To keep road accidents to a minimum, it is necessary to improve young drivers’ skills through safe means. Some of the most desired vehicles in this age-group are hot hatch cars, because of their sporty nature and low price. As a result, starting from 2025, some of the most popular electric cars amongst young drivers will be designed to house a mixed reality driving simulator, with the option for it to be removed upon the driver’s completion of the training program.
SimCAR’s built-in driving simulator works by connecting the driver’s seat, pedals and the steering wheel onto strongly structured actuators that in turn are connected to the main passenger cell. Along with the usage of augmented reality, SimCAR can accurately simulate the vehicle’s driving dynamics, on a variety of road courses and in different conditions.
