The SIMUVEG Driving Simulator is an advanced system specially designed to represent realistic scenes in an immersive environment. The simulator was developed by the SINTEC research group of INTRAS and its scientific equipment was subsidized by the University of Valencia.

This system is based on a large 160-degree screen lit by three 2000 lumens XGA projectors. The driving cockpit is a full Renault Twingo car which has been modified by the addition of different sensors in its main operational parts. It also has an 5.1 audio system connected to a PC that generates 3D sound and doppler effects. But the most important part of the system is the graphic workstation, it mainly carries out the generation of real-time 3D images according to the car sensor data.

The simulador has been used as the main tool in numerous projects with public institutions and private companies.
