What are Simulators

 By: Anil Singh
Simulation can be defined as the process of creating a virtual environment or object which can be a physical system or can be an object. Simulators come with the hardware and the software which runs on it to create the real experience.

The main purpose of a Simulator is to understand the behavior of the system. Most of the popular simulators are based on Games, where people who can't afford the real object can buy simulator and have the real game experience that too at the convenience of sitting at their home.

Some popular game simulators are:

Flight Simulator: It is the re-creation of virtual Flight environment. The actual effects of turbulence, air density and cloud can be experienced using these flight simulators. It is used for flight trainings for pilots. Even the developers of Aircrafts use these simulators to test the characteristics of aircraft, etc.

Driving Simulator: You are planning to buy an expensive car but you don't have enough driving experience in real world. That is where these driving simulators can help. Obviously no one wants to bang their new BMW. These driving simulators can be used for training as well as many people use it as a toy for entertainment.

Don't get confused between a Simulator and an Emulator

The imitation of another environment is known as Simulation. Let us take an example of the most popular simulator, "Flight Simulator". In flight simulator, the environment of flying an airplane is created in a small room. People can experience the real environment for flying a plane with no risk of plane crash and dying.

An Emulator is the imitation of one object into another. An Example is: A play station emulator can be used on PC to run play station games on PC. Basically, software is used on PC so that it can recognize Play station CDs. The purpose of Emulators is to make it environment recognize one object as another.

Golf being a popular game, many companies have started making golf simulators. These are affordable and can give you the real experience of playing the golf. Many professional golf players have also started using these simulators for improving their game. The good thing about it is you can save time running behind the ball as in the real golf course. So you can practice more shots in less time.

When it comes to choosing golf equipment, you will always be confused with the variety of equipment available in the market. These come with different shapes, sizes and materials. The decision to choose the equipment plays a very important role as it directly impacts the golf game. The race for more distance from the tee has given rise to manufacturers using various materials in the club heads. The traditional woods are still used today and are popular amongst many golfers.
Renting a golf simulator was almost impossible few years ago due to the massive size of the simulator and the cost related to it. Since the traditional simulators were massive, it was very difficult to port it from one place to another. The rent required to hire any golf simulator was almost $2000-$3000 per day plus the additional charge of transport. Since these traditional golf simulators were very massive, it required a large area for installation, which is not easily available. No one even thought of renting one for home, as it required many alterations to the structure, which was not worth if you are just renting one for few days.
If you are into any golf business or have any prior experience in it, you most probably would be aware of the passion people have for playing the golf game. There are hundreds of reasons which keep them away from the golf course for playing their favorite sport. Some common reasons which keep the golfers away from the course are bad weather and lack of time. These are the reasons which have increased the popularity of golf simulators and golf simulators have become the second golf course for playing golf. Golf Players can experience the real golf while playing on these virtual indoor golf simulators. Another advantage is that, you do not have to put in much money and time while mastering this game.
