The Simulator Laboratory is a facility at Augusta University for advancing scientific understanding of complex
motor, visual, and cognitive skills through state-of-the art simulation. The primary
mission of the Simulator Lab is to support the integration of advanced simulation
and eye tracking technologies so that researchers can conduct experiments in eye movements,
multimodal cognition, and driving performance. The lab specializes in the assessment
and rehabilitation of driving in individuals with central nervous system conditions,
including stroke, Parkinson’s disease, and multiple sclerosis. We also provide clinical
driving evaluations for patients with visual, cognitive, and behavioral conditions
who seek medical clearance to drive.
The Simulator Lab is comprised of two simulation rooms, a falls risk assessment room, a vision assessment room, a data collection room, and a debriefing room. Equipment includes a STISIM Drive Interactive Driving Simulator Model 300 (a full bodied car with all its mechanical parts and three projector screens), a STISIM Drive Interactive Driving Simulator Model 100WS (a wide field-of-view desktop simulator), three synchronized FOVIO remote eye trackers, two Keystone View Devices, and two Useful Field of View Analyzer Systems.
