© 2019 IEEE. This paper presents the design of Hector- Vr®, a mixed-reality driving simulator specially developed for older drivers. Hector- VR®uses a physical vehicle combined with an Oculus Rift virtual-reality head mounted display to provide an immersive driving experience and test a user's driving performance and competence. The mixed-reality driving simulator System of Systems design, which consists of sensor and actuator systems, user-interface systems, and data-storage-and-reporting systems, can be integrated as a service within an aged-care facility. Results show positive responses from user evaluations conducted over three development phases (alpha, beta, and final), indicating a high level of agreement among users in terms of ease-of-use.
