Capability

Forum8 has developed UC-win/Road, a 3D virtual reality modeling and visualization software tool, that may be used stand-alone or in conjunction with a drive simulator. It is most commonly used to simulate the built environment, in particular civil infrastructure, and interact with such spaces in an immersive way. Users can: manipulate dynamic 3D space;  import and edit CAD data; build and texture simple block models;  automatically build roads, tunnels & bridges; view multiple design alternatives in real-time, online and offline; as well as being able to visualise and edit intelligent traffic in ways previously not possible.

Features…

  • 3D road and building (streetscape, cityscape or landscape) visualisation
  • Traffic generation with set parameters (e.g. traffic volume and signal phasing)
  • Driving simulation
  • Create videos and export them as AVIs
  • Real time simulation of vehicle/human/animal/vegetation movement
  • 3ds, LandXML, satellite image import (as well as Shapefile and other import, using plug-ins)
  • Easily design and edit road and terrain
  • Environmental visualisation: time of day, sun position, weather and shadows
  • 3rd party software plug-ins
  • Customise with Software Development Kit
  • Evacuation and fire/smoke simulation/visualization
