Driving System 2
Fiber optic steering wheel with brake and accelerator pedals for fMRI driving tasks
All plastic construction
Compact and adjustable
Current Designs' second generation fMRI Driving System is perfect for driving simulation tasks used in the human brain mapping project. It is non-magnetic, non-electronic, and entirely made out of plastic, so will not add noise to the images or raise safety concerns in the MR/MEG room or similarly demanding environments.
- Response device for the FIU-932 and Birch interfaces
- All-plastic steering wheel and foot pedals
- Mounted together on adjustable frame
- Can be used in the magnet or while sitting in a chair
- Steering wheel either 7 inches or 8 inches in diameter
InterfacingThese components connect to an FIU-932 or BIRCH interface through a bundle extension. The interface will appear as an HID game controller with 3 axes. The output can be checked most easily using a generic game controller diagnostic program (e.g., the windows game controller control panel). It has been used successfully with several driving simulators.
What Else Is NeededThis handheld response device needs an electronic interface to convert the optical signals to standard computer interfacing signals. In most cases you will also need a long optical fiber extension bundle to allow this device to be used at a distance from the interface unit. The required interface and compatible bundles are shown below in the Related Products section.
|This item contains no metal, nothing electronic, and nothing magnetic. It can be used safely in the magnet room.
