HackJunction table-top prototype
future full size platform
'Experience is something you don't get until just after you need it' Virtual Reality is a way to change it.
Simulator will teach how to understand and correctly estimate the road situation and how to avoid accidents, give a real experience and real muscle memory, which will allow pilots to react quickly and adequate to any road occasions.
The key to achieve a learning efficiency is a full immersion. We have to involve all possible senses by adding full body motion tracking, haptics, perception feedback, combined with dynamic motion platform and sophisticated true-physics simulation software.
We have started from physics of cornering. We biult a table-top dynamic motion platform and implement physical model in code. We made a simpe desktop game and connected desktop part with microcontroller.
Physics was the hardest part, so definitly it is a very good start. Next step is to build a full size dynamic platform for test drive.
