This paper focuses on the effect of using an actuated driving simulator to increase the realistic perception on a human driver. Understanding the implication of decision making while driving a vehicle, remains a challenging task. The driving task was often approached in the literature as a visual guided task, nevertheless latest research claim that driving skills are considerably affected by the vestibular system of a human’s body. The main idea is to test how the human vestibular system responds to the movement reproduced with an actuated driving simulator.
