Abstract

The paper presents the most currently used driving simulators. Based on the analysis of the operating conditions of the rail vehicles the criteria to be met by this type of vehicle simulator have been characterized. In addition, the paper defines the animation requirements. Reference was made to both graphics and video presentation techniques. The paper also discusses the design requirements for the installation of a cab simulator and extras such as the sound effects. The most important requirements have been defined for programming of the simulated routes, weather conditions, collisions and other parameters that can significantly improve the quality of a training simulator. The paper discusses the function of control of the course of the exercise trainer and the requirements of his job. Finally the paper discusses the issues of the negative impact of driving simulators on the human body and methods of prevention thereof. Keywords: animation, simulation disease, driving simulator, rail vehicle simulator.
