title Virtual Driving: VR city modeling and drive simulation in real time
source Digitizing Architecture: Formalization and Content [4th International Conference Proceedings of the Arab Society for Computer Aided Architectural Design (ASCAAD 2009) / ISBN 978-99901-06-77-0], Manama (Kingdom of Bahrain), 11-12 May 2009, pp. 335-347
summary This paper introduces a VR city model developed for driving simulation. The project is a part of interdisciplinary multi-year academic research grant. First, the outline of the research is explained. The process of VR city modeling is then introduced. The modeling process of creating road and intersection networks and traffic flow is explained. The system integration with a PC, modeling and VR software, and a Drive Simulator is illustrated. A case study of driving through the city with different traffic amounts using the simulator is analyzed. Computational tools to extract driving behavior data and future endeavors are discussed.

summary This paper outlines the work and organizational framework of World16, a working group of 16 professors from around the world that engage in collaborative research on virtual reality (VR) technologies. Because of the abundance of VR software and the resulting fragmentation of research efforts in this field, World16 shares knowledge and resources using a common software package. A common research platform facilitates the sharing of data and the coordination of research efforts among member professors spread around the world. In addition to the organizational practices of World16ís project management team, various tools and methods of sharing research are described. Additionally, World16ís major research projects are outlined as well as the successes and failures of working within a shared software platform. Lastly, future work and goals of World16 are discussed, including the marketing and commercialization of several computational tools created by member professors.

title Rapid SmartCode Modeling - Procedural Modeling for Urban Environments
source SIGraDi 2009 - Proceedings of the 13th Congress of the Iberoamerican Society of Digital Graphics, Sao Paulo, Brazil, November 16-18, 2009
summary This paper presents an image-driven method to rapidly generate 3D digital urban models for presentation in a real-time Virtual Reality (VR) environment. Several computational tools and methods are developed in order to give the end user the ability to transform a single 2D image into a realistically textured and rendered a 3D urban model. Using this method, city models based on SmartCode, a template for planning and urban design, are generated and presented in a VR visualization tool. The methods to generate VR city models including inputs, process, output, and pipeline are explained. One generated 3D city model is demonstrated in the results section.
