We have tested for you Honda’s latest driving simulator and we loved it!

Back in March 2010, Honda upgraded its Automobile Driving Simulator with many little improvement including three 42” Full HD LCD and a touch panel monitor (list of changes here below the video), and we could not resist on calling Honda and giving it a try.

A couple of day later, Honda kindly organized for us a test session at their R&D center for Driving simulator and added to the list of goodies to try their latest Motorbike simulator and, believe me on this one, a bicycle simulator for kids!

Anyway, want to know more about these amazing simulators? Just check the video below! (Never thought that riding a simulator and talking in English at the same time would have been so difficult)

Major changes made for the all-new automobile driving simulator:
・A new function was added to provide easy-to-understand graphics and/or written descriptions of conditions where the driver should be cautious, as well as how the driver can ensure safe driving in potentially dangerous situations that have a high possibility of occurring in the real world.
・A more affordable 2-axis motion base type was added to the original 6-axis motion base type.
・A high-definition 42-inch LCD display was adopted for the simulator.
・An easy-to-operate touch-panel monitor was adopted.
・The function that displays the driving result after the simulation driving is now a standard setting.
・”Night mode,” “Fog mode” and “Highway experience version” are now standard software options for the automobile-driving simulator.
