Looking for an experienced programmer who can help build a Driving Simulator, or port a current Driving Simulator, so that temporal resolution performance data can be measured and analyzed.
This contract includes multiple sub-projects, or mile-stones, and the ultimate end goal will be to have a fully functional, completely modifiable application that can be used for applied psychological-experimental research.
A good description of what I want is here: https://www.clemson.edu/cbshs/departments/psychology/research/drivesim.html.
At the present moment I just need a small prototype which allows the user to set the length of track, allow user to control the car, metrics based on how far from the center of the road the user is at any given time interval, and once the user finishes, I'd like an output file listing user position on the track at a small interval of time... For instance if the track length is 1000, I want to know the users position on the track, the users position from the center of the lane, and the time interval (1s?) for each observation.
Ultimately, I want something more complex, like TORCS https://sourceforge.net/projects/torcs/, but for the time being, I just want a working prototype to ensure that we are moving in the right direction. After we successfully complete this, the next milestone will be adding options to insert distractors into the environment, like stop signs/lights, etc.
I'm open to any alternate approach to doing this, so please feel free to reach out.
Also, I attached an image of the level of simplicity that I'm aiming for... Something thats very low resolution 3-D, almost 2-D...
