In this paper we present our experience with the development of a simulation software for evaluating the use of tinted windows on the vehicle windshield as well as their effects on drivers’ vision. The motivation for the development of this study lies in the fact that simulation software can contribute to studies of human performance and its consequences in the area of vehicular technology. We present the specification of the application and the details of its implementation, as well as an analysis of the quantitative and qualitative results of the use of the simulation software.
