|FORUM8 ran a booth for the first time at CES ASIA held at Shanghai New
International Expo Centre from June 11 to June 13, 2019. CES, the world
largest trade show of consumer technology and electronics device is held
in every January in Los Angeles, the US. CES ASIA started in 2015 as the
biggest exhibition of state-of-the-art technology in Asia and is held in
June every year. FORUM8 exhibited the latest solutions at CES ASIA this
year following CES in January.
FORUM8 booth was at the automobile section and FORUM8 introduced various
products including the 3D real-time virtual reality software UC-win/Road
Ver.13 under the theme, "VR/AR/MR, IoT and Gaming Solutions by FORUM8".
FORUM8 showcased a variety of solutions. VR-NEXT is a cross platform application
corresponding to a new rendering method called "Physical Base Rendering
(PBR)" that is for 3D model with realistic physical characteristics
like material and light. Shade3D is a Japanese-born comprehensive 3D CG
software selling over 500,000 copies. The hands-free driving "Air
Driving" using UC-win/Road VR user interface linked with Kinect or
Xtion Pro®, the 4-axis motion driving simulator, and the autonomous
driving by the automatic steering VR simulator with torque control were
also exhibited. In addition, visitors experienced FORUM8's latest technologies
such as a AR application system that simulations of manufacturing lines
are shown on tablet or smartphone devices when users hold the devices over
the drawings. The interactive cloud solution VR-Cloud® allows the control
of the VR space and the driving simulation with mobile devices. The VR
Motion Seat is cooperated with a HMD (Head Mounted Display) and shows wearers
the VR of the ride on a roller coaster running through buildings in Shinagawa.
FORUM8 also explained its ADAS related simulation technology, visualization
examples of analysis results of big data, and customization examples to
utilize sensing data in the VR space as a development environment of AI
and deep learning function.
As effective VR usages, FORUM8 suggested the detection and use of surrounding
objects and line information after simulating sensor functions, the analysis
of scenes and the display of it in sorted segmentation, and the display
of depth information.
Many people related to ADAS and automobile visited the event, and it was
a great success as an exhibition in China.
Since FORUM8 exhibited systems in a variety of fields, it could introduce
its results and study cases, exchange information about new projects, and
get several business talks with departments that other groups of the same
company are already a FORUM8 user as well as new users.
FORUM8 is going to showcase at CES 2020 in next January and CES Asia 2020
in next June in a bigger space than this year. VR related products and
solutions are planned to be exhibited at these exhibitions.
FORUM8 will suggest up-to-date VR simulation. Please keep your eyes on
