Experience the future of accident prevention!

The two research projects called FAPS and PAPS-XR draw on Virtual Reality technology to increase the traffic safety of children and teenagers. For this purpose, road traffic accidents are simulated in a 3D environment. Subsequently it is possible to experience real accident scenarios firsthand and assume the perspectives of all parties involved in road traffic via VR glasses and a tablet. This way, children, teenagers, and adults as well can improve their awareness of critical situations in traffic and adapt their behavior accordingly.

We are looking forward to presenting to you this fascinating technology for increasing traffic safety in a playful way!
