Development of a database and database compiler in support of a low cost driver trainer simulation system design
The field of real-time simulation is a rapidly growing area. The recent defense budget reductions have motivated the government to seek out more cost-effective training methods. Simulation is not only cost-effective, but it is also offers more thorough training because faults can be injected into the system without threatening the safety of the student. While simulation is very cost-effective relative to real-world training in many applications, most simulation systems are still very expensive. Recent advances in technology have allowed low-cost simul.a tion systems to become a reality. This paper provides an overview of a low-cost driver trainer simulation system that is currently under development at the University of Central Florida. The focus of the paper is in the area of database development for the prototype driver trainer simulation system. The database development tools provided by the image generator vendor are quite limited; therefore, a database compiler was developed to allow an efficient means creating and modifying databases. A prototype driver trainer database was developed using the compiler and is defined in detail within this paper.
