One of the technical tours at ITS Canada 2022 in Windsor Ontario we have identified will be the VR CAVE, located in Windsor. The Invest Windsor Essex VR(Virtual Reality) CAVE site is one of six Regional Technology Development Site(RTDS) in Ontario under the Ontario Vehicle Innovation Network. As an RTDS , their goal is to support small and medium scale companies develop and validate products in the Connected and Autonomous Vehicle space. The VR CAVE provides a platform to simulate and validate sensors i.e., Lidar, Radar, Camera and related software algorithms using physics-based simulation software. Also available are a compendium of test tracks that allow virtual validation of various Canadian road environments. The immersive virtual reality CAVE also can be utilized for product design and visualization. Ontario based SMEs can access the VR CAVE and engineering support for zero cost.
In partnership with ITS Canada 2022 “Technical Tours Committee”, the team at the VR CAVE is inviting Ontario based SMEs/ITS Canada members to submit their test-demo by February 1, 2022. Two of the submissions received will be demonstrated exclusively during the VR CAVE Technical Tour at ITS Canada 2022 on Thursday May 4, 2022.
