Getting driver’s license has become a thing for young adults worldwide once they pass the legal age to drive. Traditionally, these young adults go through driving lessons and tests before they can officially receive licenses. For some, the limited amount of lessons are enough for them to ease through the test, but for others, more practices help to settle them down during actual tests. Imagine if you don’t have to go through any of these lessons and practices, what are the ways to help you successfully pass the test and get your license? TechDesign has one such solution from our partner at Nuvoton Technology, and we want to share it with you all.
The USB driving simulation system
The solution is a USB driving system that simulates actual driving conditions, and it can be used for different purposes. The system is powered by the high-performance microcontroller from Nuvoton. Once the system is setup, users can start using the steering wheel and pedals to experience the system. The Nuvoton microcontroller comes with 8 USB ports that allow it to host 8 different kinds of devices. This also means that up to 8 different features can be integrated into the system. What’s better is the NuMicro mechanism that prevents copyright infringement.
How can it work in real life?
Like mentioned in the beginning, this driving simulation system can be a good way to replace the traditional way of learning and teaching driving skills. Users can now easily learn and review driving skills at home or anywhere that has a computer. Another advantage of using the simulation system is that for beginners, they can drive in a completely safe environment without having to worry about unexpected accidents. In other words, they can focus better and learn quicker.
In addition to learning how to drive, the system can also be used for entertainment purposes. Simulation has long been a feature of video games, whether the games are about car racing or monster slaying. Nuvoton’s USB driving simulation system is not only easy to set up but also much cheaper than getting a set of video games. These are not all of its benefits. The system leaves room for customization, so users can fine-tune it based on their needs or preferences.
