The driving simulator lab is located at the CSU Powerhouse Energy Campus. The simulator is a National Advanced Driving Simulator MiniSim, with 140 degree horizontal field of view. It has customizable scenarios and customizable interface displays capable of responding to user input. The simulator is equipped to simulate manual, semi- and fully-autonomous driving. We use this functionality to perform human factors evaluations of driver behavior.
Field testing on a closed track is conducted at Christman Field, which is located at the CSU Foothills Campus. The facility has a 4000 ft by 60 ft runway and controlled airspace, which can be used for controlled field testing.
