This paper delineates the conceptual algorithms of a driving simulator which is intended for vehicle performance evaluation and to act as a virtual platform for research studies and therefore eliminates the cost and dangerous of field testing. A virtual proving ground for vehicle testing has been devised through which virtual handling, traction and ride tests can be performed. A fully instrumented simulator cabin combining the driver and the vehicle simulation package is developed. Different vehicle configurations are simulated during typical sever manoeuvres which reflects the robustness and fidelity of the devised simulator.
