For the use of the driving simulator, please contact Dr. Lee Han (

"Real world" driving research can be dangerous and repeatable experiments are difficult to conduct. So, we use the driving simulator.

UT Driver Simulator was established with funding from UT's College of Engineering, Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering, as well as from the Southeastern Transportation Center.

UT Driving Simulator: The RS-600 It is a fully integrated, high performance, high fidelity driving simulation system designed for use in ground vehicle research, training and assessment applications. The RS-600 hardware is combined with the industry's most advanced scenario authoring tools to provide an ideal environment for subject matter experts to create purpose-built driving scenarios. Researchers can create their ideal driving laboratories by using our extensive library of roads, intersections, vehicles, traffic patterns and landscapes, then scripting specific actions in order to collect the desired data.
