Simulation (Double-wishbone Suspension System)
Visual effect only at the moment

Linked up each component of a double-wishbone suspension system to be simulated for Zoom Car World 3, or a future racing simulation project. Created the visuals and moving the tire based on spring length, as well as computing spring length based on tire position.

More AIRS (Artificial Intelligence in Racing Simulations)
Non-traditional AI research project using LiveForSpeed as base racing simulation.

This project is a brute-force learning playground to get an artificial driver racing in a simulated environment not using traditional methods. The driver gets the left/right edge of the track, and from their computes where the corners are and the best geometric racing line. The driver then uses a virtual controller and drives the car using a few sensors for information.

Tire Simulation (Point-mass Particle System)
Visual deformation effect only

In this project I setup a point-mass particle system connected together by various springs to create the carcass of the tire and allow it to deform visually.
