Lecture: Future of Vehicle Simulators

Edward J. Haug, Jr., a pioneer in the development of vehicle simulators, will present the latest developments in the simulator industry - with applications for both military and civilian vehicle design - in a lecture at the National Science Foundation (NSF) on May 23.

Haug will discuss research on the recently completed $80 million National Advanced Driving Simulator, a system that can simulate the experiences of driving both civilian and military vehicles under a variety of road conditions (including bumps and spin outs).

Haug will also discuss several recent experiments, including interactive military vehicle simulations that link researchers at Army facilities in Michigan to the new driving simulator in Iowa.



Dr. Edward J. Haug - Carver Distinguished Professor of Mechanical Engineering at the University of Iowa and Director, NSF Industry/University Cooperative Research Center for Virtual Proving Ground Simulation
