Interactive VR design software from FORUM8
FORUM8’s interactive VR-Design Studio* software is deployed by hundreds of research organisations, urban planners, transportation authorities and vehicle manufacturers across all four continents to create fully immersive, realistic models of the built environment.
Feature-rich and highly extendable, VR-Design Studio enables users to dynamically manipulate 3D space, import and edit CAD data, build and texture models, and automatically add roads, tunnels and bridges to create multiple design alternatives in real time, both off and online. The completed models provide users with the ability to visualize and intelligently interact with the virtual world they have created, enabling analysis of the potential environmental impact of the proposed development, including on pedestrian and vehicular traffic flows, to facilitate the widest possible stakeholder collaboration during the planning process.
With an extensive range of industry standard 3rd party plugins available, together with access to external data sources including laser-scanning, Lidar and photo-logs, users can quickly create multiple scenarios and simulations, reproducing all types of weather, light, topology and road-surface conditions to create a highly realistic platform for advanced driver and emergency incident response training.
*(VR Design Studio is also known as UC /Win Road in other regions of the world)
