Real-World Lab Simulations Can "Drive" Students To Success

What happened when Quanser took some of its traditional, time-tested, controls equipment and added a new, motivating application layer of automotive driving simulation? It created a highly engaging controls application called the Quanser Driving Simulator (QDS). It’s like a video game on the surface, but underneath the QDS is a genuine Hardware-in-the-Loop engineering experience in an automotive design context. This is yet another new and creative path Quanser is exploring to engage students immediately and thoroughly. Watch as Quanser’s Chief Education Officer, Tom Lee, explains the QDS concept and a University of Toronto student describes her experience with it in class.
