Lexus Builds Massive Driving Simulator


Lexus has created a new, extremely sophisticated simulator that fully mimics the driving experience:

It’s hard to imagine what something of this magnitude would have cost, but as a way to gather precise data on otherwise dangerous driving experiences, it’s essentially priceless.

Along with this commercial, a longer, more detailed explanation of the driving simulator was posted on Youtube:

I know it’s meant for the development of new safety technologies, but can you imagine how much fun it would be to use? Just brilliant.

    We have something like this for our flight simulation, giving the pilot 360 degree aerial view. It’s a great asset for training pilots. I can tell Lexus spent a ton of money on this simulator. I admire Lexus for their on-going endeavor to make their products better and more advance.

    Actually, Toyota develop this driving simulator awhile back. Its nothing new for Toyota/Lexus. They’re just advertising the heck out of it since the recall has made a small dent.

    @emptystreets130: They should. And it’s cute how they just covered up the Toyota logo with a Lexus L-insignia.

    As a matter of fact, I think this was already featured in an article on this site.

    Oh yeah, I totally wrote about this simulator already — I just thought this might be a new one because of the logo switch. 8-)
