Vamos, Opensource Automotive Simulation Framework

Vamos is a very young project concentrating on being an automotive simulation framework with an emphasis on thorough physical modeling and good C++ design. Vamos includes a real-time, first-person, 3-D driving application.

It also includes a number of cool real-world locations, with tracks such as Germany’s Nurburgring and Japan’s Suzuka Circuit, among others. However, this won’t be a major draw card of authenticity just yet, as the graphics are still at a level comparable to a 286, and the cars resemble something more like what Postman Pat would drive. As a result, the project’s author is inviting anyone to contribute to the effort. Still, it looks promising, especially as parts of its code are being borrowed from another project.
