Development of a VR Flood Situation Experience System

In recent Japan, flood disaster is frequently caused by typhoons and torrential rain. However, people’s awareness of flood disaster is not high, and low evacuation rates are in question. Since existing research and contents only display the water depth at flooding, it is difficult to fully tell the danger of flood damage. In this research, we aim to develop a system that can tell the risk of flood disaster through the experience of walking on a flooded road using virtual reality (VR).
