UK tackles Transportation Issues Using Virtual Reality

Catapult Transport Systems has implemented Virtual Reality Oculus Rift-based Omnifinity set, to create its so-called "Visualisation Laboratory" in which they plan to test in Virtual Reality how pedestrians will react to automated cars or trams.

A bit overkilling it, I say, but the tech behind this underwhelmingly disappointing goal is quite impressive. Catapult uses a massive omnidirectional mill called Omnideck6 which its developer calls it "a step closer to Star Trek's holodeck," to test pedestrian VR reactions to said automated cars and public transportation.

Combined with that, there is also the aforementioned Omnifinity Virtual Reality set that combines the Oculus Rift DK2 VR with the Omnideck6 to create a completely VR immersive experience that was first developed to serve military simulators.
