DriveSPEX

DriveSPEX provides a Virtual Reality experience and analysis for driving in and around your city. It helps you understand the performance of your road design and so improve safety, accessibility , navigation and the driving experience. DriveSPEX enables you to test and improve your road design from the perspective of the driver.

Virtual driving experience

DriveSPEX is a total solution to virtualise a city and its roads. Having a virtual model in which you can drive through enables you to:

  • Promote and effectively communicate the design to all stakeholders
  • Evaluate different design options before construction starts
  • Experience the look & feel by really stepping into the designed environment
  • Analyse sightlines and road signing solutions
  • Assess driving behaviour to optimize accessibility and safety
  • Model driving behaviour

Analytics

Next to the high quality virtual reality visualizations, our models enable you to analyse human driving behaviour and their emotional experience based on the following analytics:

  • Driving routes and speed
  • Viewing behaviour with eye-tracking analytics
  • Measure emotions with facial expression analysis software, emotion-tracking wearables and eye-tracking technology
  • In model questionnaires and other gamification techniques.
  • Reaction time measurements

Your virtual reality solution

We will create the solution that fits your need. Based on the available (GML, BIM or other types of) drawings we will use  procedural modelling techniques to quickly create a high quality virtual reality environment. By adding light, sound and allowing you to freely move through the environment a true immersive experience is created. The model can act as a platform to be connected to other models and systems. For instance traffic models, light plans or wayfinding systems.

We deliver

The deliverables vary from web-based access to the VR model to a full Virtual Experience System including a driving simulator, VR glasses and computer system to be used  for promotion, evaluation, testing, education or demonstration purposes. Our solutions can include:

  • Virtual Reality model development
  • Gamified elements within VR environment
  • Analytics wizard to analyse user experience
  • Integration with Smart City/Building IT platform (IOT)
  • Deployment to smartphone, tablet and computer (can be web-based)
  • Driving simulator setup for VR experience
  • Purchase or rent of hardware
