  • Start Date: Jul 1, 2019
  • End Date: Jun 30, 2020

Project Summary

Our goal is to provide a single integrated hardware/software platform capable of training
operators of:
• Bicycles
• ATVs
• Snow Machines
Our goal is to use modern virtual reality (VR) technology to put people "in the driver's seat"
virtually, so they can safely experience accidents like skids and rollovers, and see a slow-motion
replay to understand and visualize the physical forces involved in each event.
