Virtual CRASH allows users to easily create 3D environments within which vehicles can travel. Occasionally it’s necessary to build overpasses for simulations and animations. In this post, we’ll review how to create a simple overpass using an extrusion object.
Recently a Tesla Model 3 driver was in a close call incident while using the Autopilot feature. He posted a dashcam video of the incident, and we were glad he did. We were able to perform an analysis of his video to estimate the Tesla driver’s ground speed.
Occasionally it can be useful to play videos in reverse. Visually, this can help the viewer see certain details a bit more clearly, such as a pedestrian’s head contacting the A pillar in a Virtual CRASH generated pedestrian impact animation, as the video scrubs backward and forward in time. In this post, we’ll discuss how to make merged and reverse videos.
In this post, we’ll discuss how to cover up gaps in point clouds or areas of low density. Gaps can occur either because of lack of coverage in the original point cloud dataset or because of the “remove points” feature of the Easy Surface Builder tool.
