What could a concept for automobile manufacturers, suppliers and the legislature look like? These questions had to be answered in this research project.
Autonomous vehicles will significantly interfere with the dynamics of traffic, especially the interaction between cars and pedestrians.
To ensure road safety, scientific studies are essential to analyze the behavior of passers-by.
How will pedestrians interact in road traffic in the future if they cannot make eye contact with the driver when crossing a street? How will they get around safely in city traffic?
The pedestrian simulator system consists of a virtual reality application and an operator panel.
The operator configures a traffic situation in which passers-by move in traffic and have to interact with autonomous vehicles.
Test persons are placed in a virtual world that depicts an existing street and feels so real that the authentic behavior of the passer-by can be simulated.
This type of data collection is resource-saving and flexible - a clear advantage of virtual reality in the context of scientific simulation systems.
The simulator is funded by the Federal Ministry for Economic Affairs and Energy and contributes to scientific work in the context of automated driving in the city of the future.
Simulation - the city of the future
Big data - behavior patterns become countable
Future - more security, more progress
Revolution - bye!
Added value - science-based insights
