DETROIT: MOTOR COMPANY Ford invited The INQUIRER for an exclusive look at its headquarters in Detroit this week during the North America and International Auto Show (NAIAS) where we got to see the firm's virtual driving simulator Virttex in action.
Hidden deep inside the company's Research and Innovation centre, Virrtex is used by Ford to study driver concentration during long haul journeys to help develop technologies to alert and warn drivers when they show signs of becoming tired.
It features a suspended dome that hosts a stationary vehicle surrounded by a 360 degree virtual environment that operates while it moves and tilts on pistons, giving test drivers the sensation of driving. µ
