SimDrive Simulator

01 Aug 2008

Thanks to the work of Animation Research Ltd, SimDrive Ltd is pioneering “Driver Training and Testing” simulators throughout New Zealand; the support from the driving industry and road safety experts is huge and there is also a high level of interest from young drivers wanting to learn to drive in a simulated environment. The simulators use real-car consoles, and provide 180° projected vision of photo realistic NZ streets and roads.

Working from a detailed specification as to the street environment and hundreds of location photos showing details of houses and shops in the Auckland suburb of Mt Eden, Animation Research constructed a Photo-Real Driving Environment including everything from council rubbish bins, to trees and parked cars. The finished result is a New Zealand looking-and-feeling urban landscape that drivers recognise and perform well within. your social media marketing partner
