Driver Training Simulation Software

            The simulation software has been developed to teach people the use of a vehicle and traffic rules. The following basic items are included in the simulator's software.

  1. Car physics
    1. Physical behavior of the vehicle used in the simulator software is correspondent with a real car.
    2. The stopping distance is the same as of a real vehicle.
    3. The stopping distance during snowy and rainy weather or on slippery floors vary, depending on ambient friction, when compared with normal weather.

All of the above data can be customized. Vehicle physics are very important in the simulation system. Therefore the simulation system owns a structure that is capable to process the smallest details. The fact that the system is completely customizable enables the user to integrate additional features to the program.

1.2. ARTIFICIAL INTELLIGENCE

The ANGRUP training simulators creates a virtual traffic environment during the training. A.I. vehicles are placed on this created traffic environment. The A.I. vehicles comply to 85% with the traffic rules and violate them to 15%. This way the training person is adapted to real life and simultaneously develops his reflexes.

The physics of the A.I. vehicles is completely processed by artificial intelligence engines of the software. Many details of the A.I vehicles such as drifting angles, braking or turning angles are available in the system.

All A.I. vehicles follow the rules of the traffic lights. They automatically perceive the nearest traffic light or user vehicle and develop a behavior that complies with the environment.

The A.I. vehicles perceive other cars and preserve the following distance. Since the vehicles own lamps, they give the right signals that need to be given in traffic. All A.I. vehicles have their own sound source. This way the engine sounds create a perception of traffic that we encounter during the day. The X-Vehicle Simulation system owns 20 different A.I vehicles.

1.3. WEATHER CONDITIONS

The simulation system can simulate sunny, rainy, snowy or foggy weather and every hour of the day. Depending on weather conditions the visual and physical changes on the street are also reflected during the simulation. Also the high quality graphics and sound effects create a close perception of reality.

The light reflections arising due to the sun's relocation during the day can be seen on the front window and wipers or lights can be controlled if needed. Because the Angrup Simulation systems are integrated with real equipment, it is possible to see all changes on the equipment in real-time on the simulator.

1.4. THREE-DIMENSIONAL MODELING

Angrup simulation systems have been developed with low polygon models. The system owns over 100 realistic building models. It is also equipped with gas stations, parking lots, bus stops and all traffic signs and markers that can be found on Turkish roads.  All scenarios in the system have independent and different models.


1.5. SCENARIOS

There are 8 different preparation scenarios, 11 different training scenarios, 1 perception-reflex test scenario for the simulation car. In addition there are 8 different scenarios for trucks and buses. Users can be trained based on their skill levels with different scenarios.

The applicant enters the system by entering the applicant number. During the training the system records all mistakes in the background. As soon as the training is completed, the data is saved on the database and gives a report to the user about the training.

1.6. TRAFFIC

The Angrup Simulation software owns four different traffic settings. The user can train in any traffic setting of his liking. The A.I. vehicles are created around the user depending on the traffic setting. Thus a real traffic environment is created. Traffic options are listed below

  • No traffic
  • Light traffic
  • Normal traffic
  • Dense traffic
