|ITS World Congress Melbourne was held for 5 days from Oct. 10 to 14, 2016
at Melbourne Convention and Exhibition Centre in Melbourne, Australia.
The 23rd ITS World Congress this year is the world's largest ITS expertism
exhibition, and a lot of car manufacturing and associated companies from
around the world every year. Entitled "Enhancing Livable and Communities"
this year, the total number of participants reached about 7,000.
FORUM8 has exhibited at the ITS World Congress every year since the 11th
congress 2004 in Nagoya, Aichi, and participated this year as a sponsor
of lanyards following last year's congress in Bordeaux. At the FORUM8 booth,
under the theme of "Offering custom built VR systems based on the
Era of Virtual Reality UC-win/Road® Ver. 11 for ITS, ADAS, and autonomous
driving research", we exhibited the latest solutions including hardware
connecting systems using UC-win/Road as below:
-3D virtual reality UC-win/Road Ver.11
-Mind Wave & VR
-Experience corner of Oculus Rift plug-in
-VR-Cloud® Ver.6 / high speed graphic server UMDC
-Compact drive simulator
-SensoDrive simulator (autonomous driving demonstration)
Drive simulator by brain wave measuring device
At the "UC-win/Road DBOX simulator" corner, we exhibited the
D-BOX simulator equipped with motion platform supporting motion cueing
that feedbacks vehicle motion feeling on three screens where interactive
driving scenario of UC-win/Road runs. There were always long queues all
day for five days.
At "Drive simulator by brain wave (MindWave)" corner, guests
experienced drive simulation with UC-win/Road and 6K signage brain wave
measurement device MindWave Mobile. Wireless stereo head device MindWave
Mobile equipping brain wave sensor measures brain wave sorted by types
of frequency like alpha and beta and converts it to psychological state
such as concentration and relaxation by original algorithm. UC-win/Road
MindWaveMobile plug-in cooperates with VR data and allows you to control
brake and accelerator operation by your brain wave. The innovative drive
simulation that the vehicle accelerated when concentrating and slowed down
when relaxing was extremely liked by everybody.
At "UAV&VR" corner, DJI PHANTOM 3 PROFESSIONAL, UC-win/Road
and AndroidTM device as the operation device, and the remote controller were exhibited,
and auto flight route setting of UAV from UC-win/Road was demonstrated.
Trial presentation by using the late-model HMD Oculus Rift CV1/Oculus RiftDK2
head mount display was performed at "UC-win/Road Oculus plug-in trial
At "VR-Cloud®" corner, we exhibited VR-Cloud® that can
control VR space by mobile terminals and perform drive simulation, and
the high speed graphic server UMDC suitable for it. The UC-win/Road hands-free
driving by using KinectTM that recognizes the motions of tester's skeleton with infrared rays was
introduced at "Infrared&VR" corner.
We continue to make system proposals applicable to ITS system R&D.
Keep your eyes on our advancement.
