This model was developed as a 3rd year project initially and then revised as part of the COMICAL project. It is a simulation of a Formula 1 racing cars. The model is layered, more complex functionality can be gradually introduced. At the final layer 2 cars can race against each other. Car setups can be changed and their routes around the track can be altered in an attempt to optimise lap times. The track shape can also be altered.
This model illustrates 'cognitive layering' (complexity added at each layer as the user understands the previous layer). This is one of the most advanced models that has been developed with the EM tools. [Chris R]
