With the information of the sensors of the vehicle, the application generates a virtual experience according to the movements of the real world so that the trips are unique.
Ubisoft shows a virtual reality experience for the Renault autonomous car
Ubisoft has announced that they have been collaborating with Renault to create a virtual reality application designed specifically for the autonomous vehicle of the French manufacturer, all as part of the SYMBIOS Demo Car project.
Using an Oculus Rift viewer, the passenger immerses himself in an experience that synchronizes real and virtual movements. That is something similar to that seen on roller coasters with virtual reality in the sense of taking advantage of real sensations such as speed and turns. The experience starts on a highway, reflecting the real vehicles that circulate around us, then after an eclipse. So, we are on the road at night to finally move to another planet. Where we no longer go by car, but by flying.
The goal of Ubisoft was to create an experience. That allows the user to relax and forget that he is sitting in the driver’s seat. And, besides, it is unique since it can not be reproduced at home when using vehicle data and real physics.
