Evaluation of KTC's Driver Simulator

This project will demonstrate the capabilities of simulation and visualization products as well as validate its ability to replicate actual driver performance. The objective will be to compare operational speeds and perceived comfort at operating speeds between 1) real-life driving conditions, 2) driver simulation performance and 3 )visualization simulations of similar roadway sections.
