Scientific drive simulation – for safe drivers
Development engineers at MAN Truck & Bus and scientists from the Technical University of Munich are investigating the interaction between driver and vehicle at the university's Department of Vehicle Engineering. Using a ride simulator the researchers examine the effects of widely differing driving situations on the driver. He should be able to keep his vehicle easily under control and devote his entire attention to the traffic situation – that makes things safer for all road users.
