Description: Systems Technology, Inc. Simulation (STISIM) Drive software is a programmable and interactive virtual reality driving simulator. Designed for use in an occupational therapy (OT) research environment, STISIM Drive allows providers to conduct research, perform OT assessments and treatments, and provide driver trainings. This software includes more than 140 simulations that present diverse driving situations, customizable roadway environments, and a variety of roadway objects that can be placed into a situation. Providers can expand the functionality of the basic STISIM Drive driving simulation software with add-on modules that include a driving under the influence (DUI) module, an Advanced Vehicle Dynamics Module (VDANL Drive) and an Open Module, which allows users to write custom source code modules that can be plugged into the STISIM Drive simulation loop using standard languages such as C, C++, Visual Basic (VB) and other Windows compliant languages. STISIM Drive is compatible with the M100, M300, and M500 driving simulation systems.

Data collected by this software may be stored on the user`s local drive since the software allows for user definable data collection.

The TRM decisions in this entry only apply to technologies and versions owned, operated, managed, patched, and version-controlled by VA. This includes technologies deployed as software installations on VMs within VA-controlled cloud environments (e.g. VA Enterprise Cloud (VAEC)). Cloud services provided by the VAEC, which are listed in the VAEC Service Catalog, and those controlled and managed by an external Cloud Service Provider (i.e. SaaS) are not in the purview of the TRM. For more information on the use of cloud services and cloud-based products within VA, including VA private clouds, please see the Enterprise Cloud Solutions Office (ECSO) Portal at:
Technology/Standard Usage Requirements: Users must ensure their use of this technology/standard is consistent with VA policies and standards, including, but not limited to, VA Handbooks 6102 and 6500; VA Directives 6004, 6513, and 6517; and National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) standards, including Federal Information Processing Standards (FIPS). Users must ensure sensitive data is properly protected in compliance with all VA regulations. Prior to use of this technology, users should check with their supervisor, Information Security Officer (ISO), Facility Chief Information Officer (CIO), or local Office of Information and Technology (OI&T) representative to ensure that all actions are consistent with current VA policies and procedures prior to implementation.
Section 508 Information: This technology has not been assessed by the Section 508 Office. The Implementer of this technology has the responsibility to ensure the version deployed is 508-compliant. Section 508 compliance may be reviewed by the Section 508 Office and appropriate remedial action required if necessary.
