■Scenario Features
Various pre-determined movements or event triggers can be assigned to models in UC-win/Road to create scenarios. For example, traffic lights can be made as always turning red at a certian point, always make a congestion at a certain spot at a certain time, etc. This gives endless freedom and combinations to create or recreate the events that are necessary for a realistic driving simulator.

■Coordination with CarSim
Driving conditions (elevation, friction, crosswind, etc.) dynamics, and parameters (pedal control inputs, steering, etc) from the Trial Simulator can be analyzed and have its motion refined accordingly for increased realism. This data can be reflected back into UC-win/Road's VR environment.

▲Virtual Mechanics 
▲Basic Motion Control Program

Road condition replication & customize   
Highly Precise Simulation Based on Road Materials, Conditions and Types
Users are free to define the road friction coefficient μ to match the potential (weather) condition of wish. These will be accurately reflected back in the simulator and motion platform.

● VR Data Production Price Examples (Traffic Accidents)
1.Railroad crossing accident
A situation of vehicles ignoring the railway crossing warning signals, resulting in a collision. Both the track and the road are 200m.
Cars and trains are animated to recreate the collision, with the car flipping over and causing a derailment.

Initial Production Cost: $3,200
2.Straying off a lane
A situation where a vehicle suddenly strays off a straight 800m road with excellent visability. The vehicle wanders into the opposing traffic and collides with another car, spinning violently before coming to a stop.

Initial Production Cost: $3,000
3.U-turn accident
A situation where accidents happened between traffic and a U-turning vehicle at a 800 m straight road.
Contains 2 different route patterns for each of the U-turning vehicle and the colliding vehicle. The violent movement after collision is also modeled after. The collidings cars also have damage details such as parts off and deformation.

Initinal Production Cost: $4,000
