Western Australia’s Curtin University has unveiled one of the most advanced driving simulators in the southern hemisphere. 

Housed at the university’s Technology Park campus, six kilometres from the Perth CBD, the CKAS Mechatronics simulator’s installation is the product of the collaboration between Curtin University and independent road research body, ARRB Group. 

Officially launched by Deputy Premier and Minister for road safety in WA, Liza Harvey, the university says the simulator will enable the Curtin-Monash Accident Research Centre (C-MARC) and ARRB to undertake “highly sophisticated driver behaviour and road infrastructure research” by recreating the forces, loads, sounds and feel of real-world driving.
