Visualization with Oculus Rift
ÅF visualizes infrastructure using VR technology
Within the scope of a large-scale infrastructure project in the Stockholm region, ÅF created a visualization which includes a car tunnel and a road.
The visualization is built using game engine technology. ÅF focused on developing a pipeline which allows the user to send models from CAD applications into the game engine with minimal effort. Minimizing work overhead means that we can now integrate visualization into smaller projects in a cost efficient way.
Initially, the visualization was built to be viewed on regular screens, but due to popular demand we have also optimized the model for viewing with VR equipment like Oculus Rift.
When using Oculus Rift, the viewer gets a unique and realistic sense of scale and the technology offers great advantages within the field of visualization.
