Description Current Designs' 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.
All-plastic steering wheel and foot pedals with custom mounting arch and brackets to fit specific scanner bed. The wheel base is attached to the arch by a bracket which rotates 90 degrees for distance and angle adjustments of steering apparatus. The steering wheel base has 180 degrees of continuous tilt adjustment allowing precise positioning for a wide range of subject and different levels of mobility. The eight inch steering wheel attached to a plastic-geared flywheel provides resistance to simulate the feel of driving.
All plastic construction.
The arch design is scaled to match a specific scanner bed, including the size of the bore and the mounting bracket hardware. DRIVE-1 components are in stock but may need customization for you scanner bed.
Steering wheel either 7 inches or 8 inches in diameter.
Interfacing These components connect to an FIU-932 interface through a 12 fiber bundle. 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.
Requirements • Requires 932 Interface and 12 fiber bundle
