Driving Simulator with VR Glasses for Evaluation of New Interior Concepts
- 17 Downloads
Experiencing cars of tomorrow already today - this intention is a key challenge in the development of new interior concepts. Here, strategic and subjective decisions have to be made at a time when real prototypes are not yet available. Volkswagen developed a dynamic driving simulator concept to evaluate variants of the passenger compartment in the early development phase. The characteristics are defined by the application of Virtual Reality (VR) glasses, the so-called head mounted display, as well as the use of a flexible seat buck in combination with a motion system.

At Volkswagen, as with all other automobile manufacturers, virtual interior evaluations are passed before concept decisions. The task of these assessments is to make certain variants of interior concepts experience and make subjective decisions easier long before the first prototypes are built in real. Current evaluation contents are multi-domain questions, among other things, on...
