Judge's special prize   Brain Activity Award
Mr. Hiroyuki Hakura
(Delegate of "the Forum for Advancement of Stereoscopic Three Dimensional Image Technology and Arts" / Designated Professor of Digital Hollywood University, Graduate School)
  Title : Mouse Driving Plugin
 Team Name :   Kyushu University SDL

We propose a new steering system for an automobile using a track ball. To evaluate the steering system, we need to conduct the experiment using a driving simulator. We can do the experiment by using this plugin which enable to drive a virtual vehicle using coordinates of a mouse.

Judge's special prize  3D Simulation Award
Pencreach Yoann 氏
(Technical Manager of FORUM8 VR development)
  Title : Evacuation Data Import and Display
 Team Name : Shanghai Univeristy Cloud1205

This work is a plugin based on the UC-win/Road 8.1.2 and secondary development of UC-win/Road SDK 8.1.2, which achieves the pedestrian evacuation and Data Interface of the UC-win/Road,the demo is simulated in the UC-win/Road. The room used in the simulation scenarios is drawn by 3Dmax, whose length is 30 meter, width is 20 meters wide, and the tables in the room also can be seen as other real-life obstacles in the real-life. The algorithm of the crowd evacuation uses the lattice gas model, then we program to exported txt-file group using the Matlab based on the model of the simulation and edit interfaces to import the related data in the UC-win/Road.

  Title : My Traffic Simulation Plugin
 Team Name : Shanghai Maritime University  Sonicboom

When using UC-win/Road to simulation traffic, traffic volume is a static number in the software, but varies time by time in real life. This could cause deviation. Change the numbers all by hand is a lot of work, which makes us want to design a plugin.

  Comment from chief of executive committee
General comments by Associate Prof. Tomohiro Fukuda, Chief of executive committee of CPWC
The 1st Cloud Programming World Cup was held in quest of new possibilities that a VR software can offer in the field of engineering, business, gaming, etc. Through the development of a new tool using UC-win/Road Software Development Kit (hereafter, SDK) and VR-Cloud(R) SDK, we could even have a debate on some of the new possibilities the newly developed contents have to offer, and that’s the kind of expectation that we have. The application to the competition started from June and 6 works were submitted by the deadline, which was October 10th. Of the 6 works, 3 works were from China and the other 3 works from Japan. All 6 works were engineering software developed using UC-win/Road SDK. The preliminary evaluation meeting took place at the end of October when the judges allocated however number of points they wished from the 10 points that were given to each of them. The judges used a Power Point Slide that explains the system’s overview and feature that was invented, a movie that shows the system in action, and the source code, all of which came with the submission, as materials they can rely on to evaluate each work. All 6 works were chosen to be considered for final evaluation on November 21st, and on this day each of the 6 teams presented on their work in front of the stage at the venue in Meguro, Tokyo. The Grand Prix went to team KU-ITS (Kyoto University) who developed a plug-in that provide seamless linkage of NIRS (Near Infrared Spectroscopy) system with UC-win/Road, very practical software considered as having integrity. All the judges gave their thumbs up for this development.
As this was our first year to hold such competition, it seemed that the students were quite hesitant to enter the competition itself and even when they did decide to take part it took them a long time to come up with a theme and to define the extent of their development. To be honest, the members of the Cloud Programming World Cup Executive Committee themselves used the trial-and-error approach to fix the application procedure and schedule for the competition. In that regard, we would like to thank all students who were brave enough to enter the competition to put their programming skills to the test. We hope that the contestants and creative works that we saw in the competition would help us improve our capability to plan, develop, design, and present a number of new systems in the near future. On the other hand, the fact that none of the submissions proposed a system that relates to VR-Cloud(R) left something to be desired. We expect to see this kind of system in next year’s competition.
