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!

Past Award Winners

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.

  • The 18th Grand Prix (Highest Award)

    Tamsu Urayasu Hospital

    Safe Driving Simulator and Evaluator
    The planned simulation can be used as a drive training system for patients with higher brain dysfunctions. The data can be gathered and objectively evaluated to see if the person in question is eligible to enter and operate a vehicle. Tests include, speeding checks, stopping in time, and parking in reverse with many more.
  • 18th Grand Prix (Excellence award)

    East Japan Expressway Co., Ltd.

    Using VR as an Experience-based Training System
    VR content that was created with the aim to be used as a training system. Users can learn about highways, bridges, and foundation work. This simulation provides the basic learning for Civil engineering and it is easily viewed in VR allowing for a safe experience-based training system.
