Abstract:After many years of service, the National Advanced Driving Simulator needed a new imaging system. The existing projectors and image generator [IG] had become outdated and worn out. The old projector system was replaced with a new design using LED projectors. The old image generator was replaced with a cluster of PCs using NVIDIA GPUs. The new systems were designed and integrated in-house. Software was developed for the image generator and for projector control and tuning.

Topics discussed regarding the projector system include: Projector system design strategy; projector selection process; mounting system; video and control signal distribution; projector control software; and projector alignment and tuning software.

Topics discussed regarding the new IG system include: IG system design strategy; cluster control and synchronization; communication protocols; rendering software; and image warping and blending software.
