Researchers from the Academy for Urban Development, Logistics and Mobility have extended the prototype of the virtual reality bike simulator with a control function, after it already had a brake and accelerate function. They did this in cooperation with Atlantis Games B.V. This feature allows the researchers to pave the way for practical problems and applications, such as virtual reality cycle exams.
During the development and implementation of the prototype it was shown that the simulator has an attraction to young people. That led the researchers to the idea of developing a virtual reality cycle exams for pupils. In conjunction with the programme International Game Architecture and Design, the simulator should not only serve as an innovative research tool, but also as a fun, challenging and attractive application.
