Autonomous vehicles must undergo extensive research and testing in various environments to be used on the road. It is difficult to experience the uncommon and hazardous events required for thorough autonomous vehicle validation. These issues are addressed by NVIDIA DRIVe Sim, a physically accurate simulation platform that can produce synthetic data close to real-world situations. With DRIVE Sim, autonomous vehicle (AV) engineers can increase output, efficiency, and test coverage while reducing real-world driving and speeding up time to market. Using high-fidelity and physically accurate simulation, the driving simulator develops a cost-efficient, scalable method of introducing self-driving cars to the road. It uses foundational technologies, such as artificial intelligence (AI), to provide a robust, cloud-based computing platform that can produce a variety of real-world situations for the creation and validation of AV. A driving simulator builds digital twins of actual settings using precision map data and can create datasets to test or train a vehicle's decision-making or perception systems. It can also be connected to the AV stack in software-in-the-loop (SIL) or hardware-in-the-loop (HIL) configurations to verify the entire integrated systems.

The global driving training simulator market is segmented based on simulator type, vehicle type, end user, and geography. Based on simulator type, the global driving training simulator market is segmented into compact simulator and full-scale simulator. In terms of vehicle type, the market is segmented into car simulator, truck and bus driving simulator, and others. Based on end user, the market is categorized into driving training center, automotive OEMs, and others. By geography, the market is segmented into North America, Europe, Asia Pacific, the Middle East & Africa, and South America. North America dominated the overall market in 2021, and Europe accounted for the second-largest share of the market in 2021.

Impact of COVID-19 Pandemic on Driving Training Simulator Market


The COVID-19 pandemic significantly affected North America's automotive OEMs, suppliers, and supply chains. Consumers' reduced willingness to make significant purchases due to uncertain economic crises led to decreased demand for new cars. This simultaneously affected driving training centers in the US and Canada, reducing consumer demand. As a result, the market for driving training simulators for passenger vehicles declined. However, there has been a brief rise in driving simulator demand from 2021. Drivers, who participate in sports events, require simulation training and practice to get a virtual experience of the environment. Further, the rising demand for virtual simulation and safety has enabled automakers to incorporate advanced features such as compact simulators and advanced driver assistance systems (ADAS).

The financial strength of automotive OEMs and suppliers was marginal even before the COVID-19 pandemic. Due to the outbreak, major automotive suppliers witnessed a year-on-year decrease in operating profit. Thus, the North America automotive market declined, resulting in a drop in research & development investments, particularly in the driving simulation industry. In addition, the manufacturing plants of Ford and General Motors slowed their operations due to the safety & lockdown protocols. However, there was a recovery in demand in 2021, due to the ease of lockdowns and financial packages introduced by governments in North America to push economies.

Market Insights – Driving Training Simulator Market

Increasing Need for Skilled Driver and Driving Safety Precautions

Driving response to the rise in accidents brought on by human error, the demand for experienced drivers, who can operate vehicles under various circumstances, is increasing significantly. Since a driving training simulator teaches the driver how to avoid collisions from all angles with the aid of a virtual environment, its demand has also augmented, leading to high market growth. The market is gaining from technological advancements and investments as well.

Around the world, driving safety precautions are becoming more and more critical. Driving simulators are widely used in instructions, testing, and research about safe and responsible driving. Virtual driving simulators can be a safe alternative to on-road testing to conduct research, testing, and training. Researchers have investigated various aspects of research and testing applications, including simulator sickness, weariness, and learned behavior, to improve simulated driving situations for simulator effectiveness.

Collaboration with numerous institutions and technical labs has been an effective strategy for research applications. For instance, train simulators are perfect for teaching new drivers the fundamentals of driving. These portable simulators can successfully deliver instruction through response assessments, perception tests, and vision exams. Trainees learn how to operate trams through virtual reality (VR) and learning experiences provided by tram training simulators. Parameters, such as speed, brakes, and vibrations, are given close attention because supervisors can use these numbers to gauge how well a prospective driver is doing.  Thus, the increasing need for skilled drivers and driving safety precautions is aiding the driving training simulator market
