The Dräger CAR is accessible from 360 degrees, allowing access from all four sides. The Dräger CAR depicts a two-door vehicle on the driver side, and a four-door vehicle on the passenger side. The CAR incorporates an operational hood, trunk lid, and doors.
The simulator makes use of vapor and liquid propane to fuel three separately controlled, two-stage fires including, engine fires, passenger compartment fires, and trunk fires.
Liquid propane fueled burners create large, powerful flames reaching high into the air. The Dräger CAR produces intense, radiant heat which teaches trainees the importance of approaching the fire with the wind at their backs.
