Hardware
    The TRC 472F Cabin is a full size fuselage to create a very realistic experience like
     you have never seen before. Only flying a real aircraft can beat this experience. Open
     the door and step in you own Cessna cockpit. Everything is included.




      The unique TRC1000 is a 100% scale replica of a popular Glass Cockpit System as
       found in many modern aircraft.




      The TRC472 Flight Deck is so realistic that you can hardly tell the difference
       between the simulator and the real aircraft.
      Simkits has produced two special sets of Standby Instruments to complete your
       glass cockpit setup. The basic set contains:
           o The USB Attitude Indicator
           o The USB Altimeter
           o USB 450 knots Airspeed Indicator
           o USB Attitude Indicator
           o The USB Altimeter
           o The USB Heading Indicator
           o The USB Wet Compass and the USB 450 knots Airspeed Indicator.
      Multipurpose Color Display

Software
    Flight Simulator Software like Microsoft's professional Simulation Platform ESP, by
      Flight Simulator FSX and (with additional software packages from third parties)
      Microsoft FS9.
    Navigation CD-Rom
    Communication software
    Comm 1 VFR Radio Simulator
    ASA GPS Trainer Software
    This pilot training software is focused on the operation of radio communication and
      related aircraft supplies, and includes interactive material to simulate flights under
      different conditions that might affect the operations of the aircraft when airwaves
      are not copied clear in the real field.
    Jeppesen Private Pilot Maneuvers Software Course is listed among the preferred
      pilot training courses, recommended to students by professional pilots and aviation
      supplies stores where this software is distributed.

Advantages of flight simulator
   Safety
 
 By its very nature, simulator training is safer than aircraft training.
     Abnormal and emergency procedures may be learned and practiced without risk to
     students, staff or aircraft. Training in simulators eliminates actual conflicting midair
     traffic. Severe weather, terrain or obstruction conflicts can be demonstrated in the
     simulator without the risk of exposure to the actual condition.
 
 


      In-Flight Failures
 
 In-flight failures of systems and instruments can be created as
       the failure would occur in the airplane. Instruments do not fail instantly, as is the
       case when the instructor covers an instrument. You can see what really happens —
       and be ready for it.
 
 If you want to fail a glide slope just after course interception,
       it’s easy to do.
 
 You can create pitot ice, carburetor ice and electrical failures. 
 
 


      In-Flight Weather
 
 If you feel the need to create a 10-knot crosswind on a VOR or
       ILS approach, it’s no problem. Create turbulence to see how your flying changes.
       
 
 

      Training Value 
 
 A flight simulator makes a more suitable learning environment
       than the cockpit of an airplane. It enables the student and the instructor to
       concentrate on the learning task. There is less noise in the simulator, allowing more
       effective communications between the student and the instructor. Temperature and
       humidity are controlled, making a more comfortable learning
       environment.
 
 Simulators save time — there is no need to start the aircraft, warm
       it up or fly to the training area — there are no delays caused by actual clouds or bad
       weather conditions. Any topic or maneuver can be dealt with by pausing the
       simulator for discussion or evaluation purposes, and specific lessons can be
       practiced many times in a short period of time.
      No heft expenses
      You don’t have to sell your home to buy an air-craft to fly. You can experience
       almost the same thrill with Pro Flight Simulator software.
      No Fuel Needed
      Imagine how much fuel you’d need to spend on if you were to take a flight around
       the world for a test drive or something. That’s absolutely not required with
       simulation software.
      No Damages
      Can you imagine a plane crash on a real world? It is possible in simulation without
       any damage to you or your plane.
      Major Flight Designs
      You need a two-seater or a massive Boeing 747, flight simulation software such as
       Pro Flight Simulator will have it for you with great details
      Fly All over the World
      Pro Flight Simulator software has a compressive coverage, almost the entire world
       so you could virtually fly anywhere in the world which is close to impossible on real
       life or require you to go through several legal aspects.

Disadvantages
    Simulation is still like a game as oppose to reality, controls and the aircraft is not
      very sensitive. stalls are too easy to recover unlike real aircraft. etc
Racing car simulation
Hardware
    PC hardware
    CD’s
    Display
    Console
    Hand controllers do not give the same feel as a Logitech, Fanatec or Thrustmaster
      wheel and pedals.
    Control
    

Software
    Windows
          o 95/98
          o 2000
          o NT
          o XP
    physics engine software
    simulation software
    The Jentig 50 is the showpiece of ST Software
    Grand Prix Legends, iRacing, Virtual Grand Prix 3, GT Legends, rFactor, F1 Challenge
      '99-'02, GTR2, Live for Speed, netKar Pro, and X Motor Racing are less popular than
      arcade-style games such as Need for Speed series
    XPI Simulation

Advantages
   Wide-range training: enable to do a lot of things. Because it is computerized a lot of
     data can be stored and therefore you are enable to experience many driving
     scenarios
   Immediate correction of mistakes: The machine allows you to correct any mistakes
     you might have made in your driving experience
   Catering of personal needs - There are different types of driving simulators. No
     matter what vehicle you need to learn how to drive, there are simulators to which
     you can train for.
   Safe training: It is safe, you don’t run the risks of accidents
   Hands-on experience - Although you won't be driving a real car, simulators are
     usually complete with real car parts

Disadvantages
      Even in the most advanced high-end simulators that are much too expensive to be
       used in the basic driver training, the imitation of real life is far from perfect. The
       learning environment is not perfect
      A problem that certainly exists is simulator sickness (nausia).


How can Technology be used to enhance safety in cars and planes?

       infrared headlamps or thermal-
       imaging cameras.
      Rearview camera
      Emergency response: Enhanced

       doors and shuts off fuel when airbags
       deploy
