Project description

The overall goal of this work is to create a testbed allowing human subjects to drive in a realistic simulation environment. The existing tools are: 1) a Logitech steering wheel + brake/accelerator pedals set-up; 2) the VIRES traffic simulator. An initial interface has already been established between 1 & 2. Tasks: 1. Expand the field of view for the drivers to include side views and a rear-view mirror 2. Implement a user-friendly way to change parameters for the interface 3. Develop new maps and scenarios for testing 4. If time permits, add a manual transmission mode for driving
