Driving simulators are becoming more and more common. For a simulator to be useful it has to be able to recreate events from the real world. This thesis looks at how well we can recreate accelerometer data collected from a simulated vehicle. First we measured accelerometer data from a vehicle driving a set route. Then we processed the data to generate input for our simulator. By using the same sensors we measured how close to reality the g-forces effecting the simulator were. Finally we organised user testing to recieve feedback on how they felt the simulator works. We asked the testers to evaluate the driving simulation. First by showing them a recorded video. Second by making the simulator move based on the accelerometer data, then finally we showed the users the video while the simulator moved based on the accelerometer data.
