Runs on 4 unix workstations with a steering wheel/pedal set. Extends previous work by building on the Sasami engine. Covers new ground in Eden input devices. Is much more of a generic model rather than a finished product but is a working simulator with a scenario editor. This can easily be extended as is discussed in the documentation. The model is an excellent example of EM principles and cause and effect. A good example of this is how everything is set up by definitions so that if one variable changes eg. velocity, a string of changes (eg. to car position) are automatically made. Although the graphics are very simple, they should be easily improved.
