Abstract

Due to the COVID-19, offline driving simulation practice teaching is not possible. In order to let students intuitively understand the knowledge about freeway diverging and merging areas, this paper develops a driving simulation platform for teaching based on Unity 3D. The terrain and road models were established based on real scenarios. The vehicle dynamics model is used to simulate the motion of the controlled vehicle. A simulation platform with adjustable traffic volume and weather conditions is implemented. The validity of the driving simulation system was verified by comparing the experimental data with actual experience. Students are given hands-on experience in the teaching process to experience the driving characteristics in the diverging and merging areas. Quantitative analysis of driving behavior in different situations in different scenarios. After subjective evaluation and objective evaluation based on questionnaires, the teaching effect is good.
