VR for Infrastructure projects Presentation by Witteveen+Bos:

The engineers and advisors of Witteveen+Bos are involved in Infrastructural projects around the world. These projects are complex and therefore corporations are sought with many parties. 

Most recently Witteveen+Bos started using VR for designing purposes. That enables them to show and include multiple stakeholders (at the same time) in their projects. One of their projects is the development of a driving simulator that enabled Witteveen+Bos in an early design stage to drive over the (to be build) highway. 

The driving simulator helps involved stakeholders to experience the design, to evaluate choices and to experiment. In the future Witteveen+Bos can even use this for disaster training. The unique realtime connection with certified calculation software for traffic simulations creates a realistic traffic scenario that response to the behaviour of the driver.

"To begin with, Virtual Reality is a part of computer science and it represents a new approach to computer science. Instead of treating the computer as a box that's out there that is supposed to accomplish something, you put a human being in the center and say, "Let's look at the human being closely. Let's see how people perceive the world or how they act. Let's design a computer to fit very closely around them, like a glove, you might say. Let's match up the technology to exactly what people are good at.""
