VRを用いた冠水状況体験システムの開発 - A VR Flood Situation Experience System

ACMP 2019 / Media Project Vol.15 (日韓コンピュータ音楽祭)


In Japan, flood disasters are frequently caused by typhoons and heavy rains. However, low evacuation rates are in question for every flood disaster. In flood disaster, early evacuation is essential because evacuation after flooding is very difficult. In this study, we have been developing a virtual reality (VR) system that can experience walking at flooding using VR. Based on the water depth and velocity under virtual flooded environment, the system calculates the walk speed of the user and judges whether walking movement is possible. We aim to enable users to evacuate speedily before flooding in actual flood disaster by experiencing the system.
