Presentation Summary

The application of real-time interactive 3D VR simulation and modelling technology in the research and development of autonomous vehicles, and the role of this software in road safety research. The paper will focus on the simulation of vehicle to vehicle and vehicle to infrastructure communication using the latest interactive 3D simulation software and a range of driving simulation hardware platforms. It will also highlight how the integration of data from 3rd party industry standard micro-simulation vehicle and pedestrian modelling software can add a further dimension to the overall simulation and design process.
