It appears that multiple factors may impact the mental and physical health of truckers. Moreover, victims of fatal injured accidents involving large trucks are mainly non-occupants of trucks. From these observations, it appears that truck drivers are likely to suffer from post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD). Our work addresses this point. This chapter describes the realization of a truck simulator for the care of truckers suffering from PTSD. Our contribution concerns the development of a serious game (SG), for not only exposing the user but also offering a familiar environment inside which he can act in order to recover his ability to face the traumatic situation. We rely on two main axes to design such a game: (a) the game mechanics to allow the user to learn new associations to the stimuli related to the fear and (b) the personalization of the virtual environment.
