Tracking techniques for automotive virtual reality

Denna publikation är en sammanställning av den teknologi som används i virtuell verklighet för att spåra användaren. Att spåra var användaren befinner sig är viktigt för att alstra vyer som anpassar sig till användarens rörelser.Publikationen inleds...

Night-time scenarios in simulators: a prestudy of needs, knowledge and possible solutions

The study in this publication investigates the need and potential for night-time scenarios in driving simulators, determines how such night-time scenarios could be reproduced and identifies the objects most important to reproduce. Although on...

Known Roads: real roads in simulated environments for the virtual testing of new vehicle...

This publication presents a project aiming to develop virtual representations of real roads for use in driving simulators. The development was done in order to enable assessments of new systems on existing and well known roads in a driving...

Driver behavior in mixed and virtual reality: a comparative study

This paper presents a comparative study of driving behavior when using different virtual reality modes. Test subjects were exposed to mixed, virtual, and real reality using a head mounted display capable of video see-through, while performing a...

Effects of Visual Latency on Vehicle Driving Behavior

Using mixed reality in vehicles provides a potential alternative to using driving simulators when studying driver-vehicle inter- action. However, virtual reality systems introduce latency in the visual system that may alter driving behavior, which,...

Performance and presence with head-movement produced motion parallax in simulated driving

Driving simulator studies can reveal relevant and valid aspects of driving behavior, but underestimation of distance and speed can negatively affect the driver's performance, such as in performance of overtaking. One possible explanation for the...

A Technical Platform using Augmented Reality for Active Safety Testing

This paper describes the design of a video see-through augmented reality system for active safety testing. The development is explained in detail, with focus on the design considerations for the different subsystems. It is shown that it is possible...

Design and performance of the VTI Sim IV

The VTI simulator IV (Sim IV) is the fourth advanced driving simulator designed and built at The Swedish National Road and Transport Research Institute (VTI). The simulator, taken into operation 2011, has an 8 degrees of freedom (DoF) moving base, a...

Augmented and Mixed Reality as a tool for evaluation of Vehicle Active Safety Systems

Even though the realism of driving simulators increases constantly, there is a potential issue with how representative the test is compared to a real life scenario. An alternative to simulators is to present a mixture of real and simulated...

Driver acceptance and performance with LDW and rumble strips assistance in unintentional...

In this ViP project the focus of investigation was whether drivers more readily accept either rumble strips or an in-vehicle lane departure warning system (LDW) in unintentional lane departure situations. The results show that acceptance was high...

Effects of motion parallax in driving simulators

Motion parallax due to the driver’s head movement have been implemented and tested in VTI Driving Simulator III. An advanced camera-based system was used to track the head movements of the driver. The output from the tracking system was fed to the...
