  4. GamyraDrive Control Software
  5. GamyraDrive 5 Pro Asset Library

SCANeR at the Core of GamyraDrive 5 Pro

GamyraDrive 5 Pro is built upon the the world’s leading driving simulation engine, SCANeR. It has been in development for over 30 years and used by more than 250 organizations including car manufacturers, such as BMW, Ford, Volvo, Renault and Mazda, vehicle component manufacturers such as ZF, leading research institutions including the Australian Road Research Board (ARRB), University of Sydney, Monash University, University of Western Australia and Qatar University, and many driver training centres around the world. More than 2,000 SCANeR licenses have been deployed and it has been featured in more than 500 scientific publications to-date.

Gamyra is an official Value Added Reseller of SCANeR. The Gamyra Technology Centre in Doha, Qatar is the only designer, developer, manufacturer and value added reseller of SCANeR-based driving simulation systems in the Middle East, North Africa and Turkey (MENAT) region.

GamyraDrive 5 Pro for Education and R&D Applications

The open and modular structure of GamyraDrive 5 Pro empowers students and researchers to design 3D road environments and driving simulation scenarios, develop test plans, tune their own vehicle dynamics models, validate AI algorithms, interface with off-the-shelf or custom hardware, and provide immersive driving simulation experiences. 

Researchers around the world use SCANeR-based systems to evaluate drivers’ performance and behavior and carry out studies on drivers’ response to external factors such as road design, signs and markings, traffic density and the behaviour of other road users, and internal factors such as fatigue, drowsiness and the effects of driving under the influence of drugs or alcohol.

Beyond traditional usage, GamyraDrive 5 Pro, with SCANeR at its core, empowers students and researchers to replace any built-in modules with their own custom modules or algorithms. This allows users to experiment with their own vehicle model or plug in their own artificial intelligence algorithm. The freedom, independence and autonomy enabled by GamyraDrive 5 Pro inspire students to be passionate and experimental, and to acquire new knowledge. Examples of the integrations enabled by GamyraDrive 5 Pro and SCANeR include:

Integration with real vehicle cockpits

Synchronized video recordings

Head tracking

Eye tracking

Breathing and heart rate monitors

Head-mounted VR systems

GamyraDrive 5 Pro Add-ons

Advanced Driver-
Assistance System

The Advanced driver-assistance system module enables researchers to test and validate ADAS systems by simulating sensors such as LiDAR, Radar and Camera Data amongst others to verify autonomous driving across millions of kilometers of realistic road infrastructure. This module can be paired with other modules such as the Driver Behaviour module to further study the impact of ADAS on human driver behaviour.


This module allows researchers and developers to validate sensor perception algorithms. It contains sensor simulation tools based on the advanced modeling of the physical world ensuring accuracy. The module provides a complete solution for advanced and realistic modeling which facilitates validation by simulation. The ADAS module can be used in conjunction with the Sensor Development module for further R&D purposes.

Advanced Vehicle

Advanced vehicle dynamics enables the creation and tuning of a vehicle dynamics model, including the powertrain, suspension, aerodynamics and tires. It is particularly useful for R&D teams who wish to study the behavior of a vehicle and its subsystems. This advanced module ensures close parity of a virtual vehicle dynamics model with its real-life counterpart, serving as an excellent validation tool before dedicating resources to real-life testing.


This module provides all the necessary tools and interfaces to measure and analyze driver behaviour. Metrics such as head movements, eye movements, respiration rate and heart rate, amongst others can be measured using existing off-the-shelf devices. Integration is handled with the simulation platform ensuring that it can be used to fit specific R&D applications.
