Monash University Open Day was held on Sunday 7/8/2016. We at the Institute of Transport Studies among many other departments and institutes had a table to showcase some of our research and education programs to prospective students. We brought our Virtual Reality gear for visitors to try on and explore this fast emerging technology. Applications of VR in transportation include but not limited to simulating user (driver/cyclist/pedestrians) behavior, testing individual's reaction to different scenarios in a virtual environment like exit choice during an emergency, etc. We welcome both undergraduate and graduate students to join us at CityX to explore exciting transportation research areas that VR can contribute to.
