This is a plug-in that links UC-win/Road to VIVE HMD (Head Mounted Display) and allows wearers to experience VR space.
HTC VIVE is a HMD for VR developed by HTC and Valve.

Functions compatible to the HTC VIVE controller

  1. Model display at the position of controller
    A 3D model you set is shown on the display and it moves according to the motion of the controller. It is useful to see the scale of motion in VR space since a model can be displayed at the position of sensor too.

  2. Function to move the point of view
    The reference point of view can be moved with the controller buttons. The VIVE provides a playing space of 5m in the diagonal, and moving the reference viewpoint lets users move around a wider VR environment.

  3. Scenario / Script menu
    In the case of the previous version, users had to take off the HMD temporarily and operate the software to play scenarios and scripts. In this version, users can display the menu and execute them from a controller.

Cooperation with Scenario Event

Event function linked with the VIVE device has been added to the scenario function. The activation and invalidation of the connection with HMD, reset view, and controller vibration setting are available. Since users can select which device vibrates, it is possible to vibrate the device at the arbitrary timing or to switch the HMD connection during driving in scenario.

Cooperation with Scenario Trigger

In addition to by operating buttons and pad on controller, users can shift scenario events by using the trigger for the collision between models displayed in UC-win/Road and ones displayed on controller, tracker, HMD, or sensor. This function allows users to ride on the vehicle when the controller buttons are pressed, when the controller model contacted with the vehicle model, etc.
