AAA Michigan Driving Simulator

Driving simulation in the D.E.E.R. Center is conducted in the AAA Michigan Driving Simulator. This high-fidelity DriveSafety DS-600 simulator consists of the cab of an economy-sized automobile mounted on a two degree-of-freedom motion base. It has a 180 x 60 degree of visual angle forward display and LCD rear-view mirrors.

Simulated driving permits evaluation of situations that older adults commonly have concerns about to be conducted in a safe and controlled environment. The simulator was acquired as a result of the generosity of AAA Michigan, one of the D.E.E.R. Center partners.
