3D/VR Simulation Contest on Cloud starts with the award winning VR Design Studio UC-win/Road software. The main event of the FORUM8 design festival is the competition between international and domestic contestants to see who can create the most advanced VR simulation using VR Design Studio UC-win/Road. A general public online vote has also been implemented since 2011. This year is surely going to be exciting!
After general voting and careful consideration by juries, Grand Prix, 2nd Prize, Idea Award, Essence Award, and 3 Honorable Judge Award have been decided.
Award Ceremony (Nov. 18th 2020 at Shinagawa Intercity Hall and Online)
Prize-winning works introduction video
SHO-BOND Holdings Co., Ltd.
The animation "概要" scans environments around the construction site and the examples of replacement of bearings. In the scenarios "シナリオ：P4－A～D" and "シナリオ：P5－A～C", viewers can see the details of the construction simulation up close. The simulation is an easy to understand explanation material, showing a series of construction methods in 3D from anchor drilling to chipping. In the animation "クレーン走行", a crane moving along the narrow agricultural road can be checked from both the 3D and 2D view.
Kyushu Technical Office, Kyushu Regional Development Bureau, Ministry of Land, Infrastructure, Transport and Tourism
By executing the scenario "遠隔操縦訓練概要", viewers can see the operation procedure using the actual equipment, notes in the preparation stage, and the explanation of VR simulation. The scenario "VR走行シーン" shows the operation training. In addition, in the scenario "重機操縦体験" viewers can operate the basic movements of heavy machines and driving in the VR space reproducing the real disaster site.
This data let viewers experience the scenarios used in the experiments to test the driver's reaction. In the scenario "説明1", viewers can see the purpose, overview, and method of the experiment and experience the experiment events after that. The scenario "セッション1" starts from the testing event including 40 patterns situation. The angle of view setting and interior structure is special-made for the experiment.
Seoul Metropolitan Government Infrastructure Headquarters
By executing the animation "Flight View", you can see the improved western highway while flying all the way. In "Driver View", you can see the image of the road structure and landscape from the driver's viewpoint by driving in a typical section. In addition, by executing "Plan", you can check the contents of the discussions, comparison of images before and after improvement, driving image, etc.
By executing the animation "施設概要", you can see the image of the area such as the location of the facility and the positional relationship with Mizuki Shigeru Road, and the inside of the facility is also expressed in a digest. In addition, if you select "施設ウォークスルー", you can see the inside of the facility in order from the entrance to the hall, and you can experience and enjoy the atmosphere of the facility from the viewpoint of an actual person.
Mitsui Consultants Co., Ltd.
If you run the animation "道路改良事業における効果的な施工計画検討", you can check the flow of road improvement work in 10 stages. The procedure of road construction and the image of vehicle traffic during construction are expressed in an easy-to-understand manner. You can also check the scenery before and after the construction of the pedestrian bridge, the traffic image and the planned construction of a retaining wall.
IWATA CHIZAKI Inc.
When you run the animation "交通シミュレーション", you can see the structure of intersections, the traffic situation, and the traffic simulation comparing normal time and during the planned construction. In addition, by running through the scenario, you can check what a driver's view will look like when waiting behind a vehicle waiting for a right turn.
Chuo Sekkei Inc.
In this work, the highway main line, the roundabout of the upper and lower lines, and the smart IC are expressed, and you can experience various simulations by executing the scenario "ランプUターン". You can check the overall view, the roundabout, and the viewpoint of the vehicle without ETC that goes around the roundabout from the smart IC and returns to the main line from a bird's-eye view. On both roundabout central islands, aprons and symbol trees are installed with colored pavement, and the contents are designed with consideration for safety and landscape.
Research Institute of Highway Ministry of Transport
If you execute the scenario "シミュレーション評価実験", you can see the representation of the simulator used for the evaluation and the explanation of the experiment method. In addition, by executing the scenario in 8 patterns, you can run the course to be used in the experiment and check the image of the comparison pattern.
TOHNICHI Co., Ltd.
By executing the animation "景観検討概要", you can check the color images of the bridge girders and street lights that were actually used in the landscape examination. Twelve types of patterns that combine beige, gray, brown, and green are introduced and can be viewed from various perspectives. Also, if you execute the scenario "フォトモンタージュ写真", you can see the image that combines the VR of the final plan and the landscape photo.
Every year we explore various fields from civil engineering/construction, to driving/traffic simulations, to even town planning. In arecent years we have noticed a change in an organizations focus to autonomous driving research, disaster prevention scenarios, education, and medical care.
