Abstract: This paper proposes the design of a driver-in-the-loop simulator for off-highway truck which can be used in both vehicle performance test and driver training. A 14 degree-of-freedom vehicle model of 190 tons truck is established in TruckSim, and the detail parameters of its subsystems are also introduced. Human drivers can input steering, accelerating, and braking signals through the operation platform designed by Ergonomics, and then sensors and PXI of National Instruments Corporation of hardware system collect and input signals into the LabVIEW program which input them into vehicle model. Handling performance experiments are conducted in the simulator by different drivers, and the experiments results show the effectiveness and real-time performance of the simulator which can realize a "driver-vehicle-road" closed simulation.


Keywords: Off-highway truck, Driver-in-the-loop, Real-time simulation, Handling performance.
