GOTHENBURG: Volvo Cars has unveiled a new tool that the Swedish manufacturer bills as the “ultimate driving simulator.”

Thanks to augmented reality, it can be used to recreate any driving scenario, in any model. But what makes this system really original is that it can record the driver’s every reaction, notably thanks to a full-body suit providing haptic feedback.

This simulator makes use of the latest video gaming technology, particularly when it comes to hardware, including a moving driving seat, a full-body suit and steering wheel providing haptic feedback, and a Varjo virtual reality headset.

The system uses the headset to immerse drivers in highly realistic high-definition 3D images.

While driving, the Teslasuit bodysuit provides haptic feedback from the virtual world, while also monitoring body reactions.

Information regarding interactions between the driver and the vehicle can then be used to help develop and hone new active safety features and driver assistance functions.

Technologies being tested by the carmaker can be trialed in the simulator to get fast results.
