Abstract:

The Tank Automotive Research, Development and Engineering Centers TARDEC Motion Base Technologies MBT team develops and applies simulation capabilities for the evaluation of emerging vehicle technologies. Currently, the MBT team is configuring its Ride Motion Simulator RMS 1 to investigate vehicle-driving performance using two indirect vision display methods. The investigation will focus on a driving simulation comparing three, flat-panel displays with a Head Mounted Display HMD. This study will involve several subjects who will drive a modeled Stryker vehicle across a rendering of Aberdeen Proving Grounds APG Churchville terrain. Subjects will drive across different segments of the course at various speeds with each display type. Measures of driving performance will be taken and compared for each display type.
