3D/VR Simulation Contest on Cloud starts with the award winning VR Design Studio UC-win/Road software. The main event of the FORUM8 design festival is the competition between international and domestic contestants to see who can create the most advanced VR simulation using VR Design Studio UC-win/Road. A general public online vote has also been implemented since 2011. This year is surely going to be exciting!

Case study: "Mizuki Shigeru Road x VR-Cloud® Ver6.1"

Provided by Tomohiro Fukuda laboratory of environment and energy engineering, Graduate school of Osaka University

In a renewal plan of Mizuki Shigeru Road promoted in Sakaiminato city, VR data of the concrete plan is created and shown to persons concerned and citizens for PR and a consensus building of the design plan. The VR-Cloud® is used for a remote design meeting by sharing the data.

Past Award Winners

Every year we explore various fields from civil engineering/construction, to driving/traffic simulations, to even town planning. In arecent years we have noticed a change in an organizations focus to autonomous driving research, disaster prevention scenarios, education, and medical care.

  • 19th Grand Prix

    SHO-BOND Holdings Co., Ltd.

    Construction VR simulation during bridge repair
    In order to improve workability, it is important to accurately grasp the on-site situation and reflect it in the plan. This time, we collected point cloud data before the construction work, and modeled the parts accurately from the design drawings to express the on-site conditions. Then we expressed the assumed construction contents and examined the workability.
  • Building a reconstruction of the area around Aso Ohashi, which collapsed due to the 2016 Kumamoto earthquake.The photo data is an aerial photograph of the actual disaster site, so that the damages caused at that time can be understood. Using this VR data, we are constructing a remote control training simulator for compact type backhoe for the purpose of initial response in the event of a disaster by connecting a remote operation controller.
