The person who has been persistent in this case is VTI researcher Johan Förstberg who has made use of his network of contacts and promoted the idea of a railway simulator. For several years it has been thought in Sweden that there ought to be a simulator for rail and other trackbound traffic for research purposes.– As a matter of fact, for some ten years there has been a railway simulator at Sweden, but this was produced for training, not for research, says Mats Lidström, one of the VTI researchers who is most involved in the simulator project.That the idea made headway right from the beginning is due to a project of Johan Förstberg concerning passenger comfort and travel sickness in connection with rail journeys. This gave rise to the idea of using the VTI driving simulator to study the situation of the driver in a train cab.
