StreetLab

StreetLab allows to study participants as they safely navigate through simulated, 3D streetscapes. With a high resolution, 240° horizontal, by +15° to -90° vertical field-of-view projection system, a curved projection screen extends from floor to ceiling immersing the observer in the Virtual Environment. A linear treadmill can be coupled with StreetLab's visual system and a high-quality surround sound system to allow observers to move through the Virtual Environment by walking on the treadmill. An audio system (7 speakers located behind the screen and one subwoofer in the floor) provides realistic surround sound. StreetLab can be outfitted with several different interactive devices
including a basic driving simulator, treadmill, wheelchair, and force plate floor.

DriverLab

DriverLab is a state-of-the-art driving simulator integrated into the Challenging Environment Assessment Laboratory (CEAL). DriverLab is the only simulator of its kind in Canada and is comparable to the most sophisticated driving simulators in the world. The coming together of this one-of-a-kind technology within Toronto Rehab, a scientific hub specialized in the integration of clinical, engineering, and industrial sectors, will place Canada as one of global leaders in driving research for rehabilitation. Indeed, the World Health Organization has declared 2011-2020 the Decade of Action for Road Safety, making the launch of this research program particularly timely, visible, and impactful.
