FORUM8 Co. Ltd.
FORUM8 Co. Ltd. (http://www.forum8.co.jp/english) has successfully built and delivered an ultra-precision driving simulator for vehicle dynamics research and development, for Nagoya University. The simulator is located inside the university's National Innovation Complex (NIC). It was first introduced and publicized during the June 12, 2015 opening ceremony of the complex.
This simulator is the world-first 5-screen 3D stereoscopic VR driving simulator that incorporates numerous elements such as driving simulation, traffic simulation, and vehicle dynamics & performances, by building upon the the interactive 3D VR software UC-win/Road (a.k.a. VR-Design Studio). The nature of the simulator being the only true 5-screen VR driving simulator makes it unique compared to existing examples (※).
It is particularily optimized to take into account and to monitor human perceptions and traits by incorporating complex mathematical models, high-luminance & high-definition visual cues, realistic cockpit modules, and a highly responsive motion platform.
The Nagoya University has been an avid participant of the Japanese MEXT's (Ministry of Education, Culture, Sports, Science and Technolgy) "Centre of Innovation (COI)" mission under the research theme of "Diversified and Personalized Society Innovation Design - A Senior-Friendly Society of Mobility". As a member of this active research mission of Nagoya University, Special-Appointed Professor Tetsunori Haraguchi has chosen FORUM8 and its VR simulator systems to examine and reserach vehicle performances and dynamics.
