Construction ReviewPlan & Review Construction Sequencing <br />Use 3D workflow to develop, test and demonstrate construction sequences.<br />Saves time and prevents errors.<br />Used for:<br /><ul><li>Methodology
Vehicle Traffic System<br />The technology includes high quality traffic movements, speeds, acceleration, green-time, cornering, queuing and merging. The system provides a quality visual simulation and representation of traffic movement .<br />Watch Video Here<br />
Vehicle Traffic System Breakdown Analysis<br />Break down a vehicle within the traffic system. Watch the traffic bank up and have an impact.<br />Simply press ‘backspace’ on any selected vehicle to cause smoke<br />Watch Demo Video Here<br />
Road Safety Audit<br />This tool provides vivid 3D real-time feedback for auditing and independent verification of stopping sight distance for single vehicle-to-object scenarios. This is the distance, measured along the carriageway, over which visibility occurs between a driver and an object.<br />- Watch Video Here<br />
OptioneeringSunshine Coast Busway<br />Option 1<br />Every view, measurement and experience is available for decision making with local design integration<br />The simulation demonstrates iterations with options <br />Traffic, terrain and behaviours update automatically with the options.<br />Makes processes faster, clearer and easier<br />Option 2<br />
OptioneeringBaxter Interchange, Victoria<br />Visual Impacts - the UC Solution allows total transparency of design analysis from any point.<br />This is particularly useful when engaging the surrounding community.<br />
The solution = a technology enabled visualisation service.

Always satisfies</li></li></ul><li>VIM for Media South Road Superway<br />Visual Quality means extensive use in media (TV, web and print)<br />Leverage your reputation by releasing from concepts and designs into video anytime.<br />Video is captured from visual interactive models directly.<br /><ul><li>More reviews with visual process
Instant images</li></li></ul><li>VIM for Funding & Bids<br />VIM successful across sectors for winning private and public funds.<br />Easier to win funding with compelling interactive 3D visual of project concept or detail<br /><ul><li>Submit as virtual model
Adds rigour and professionalism</li></li></ul><li>VIM Launches<br />Present your solutions on big screens and real-time. Nothing is more awe-inspiring and compelling.<br />Get gasps from the audience when you move about freely in high quality visual scene.<br />Use the same model as for Design Review, concepts etc<br />“I was ready to award you the project after seeing that presentation” decision panel member, $5bn project.<br />Launch of winning $5bn project that used VIM for Design Review, bid presentation and launch<br />
Functional Design Briefs<br />Give clear instructions to project teams and third parties.<br />Provides:<br /><ul><li>100% clarity
Use model for other processes (eg communications).</li></ul>Cost of vague briefs = confusion, lost time, lost productivity, reworking, failure, reputation.<br />
VIM For Operators<br />Develop and demonstrate the operational processes of systems through the real-time process.<br />Test the chronological and sequential links between events.<br /><ul><li>Demonstrate how the system will work.
Promotes innovation and lateral thinking</li></li></ul><li>Intelligent Behaviour<br />Vehicles and Characters<br />Behaving, goal-driven agents (vehicles and characters) provide feedback on use and experience of design.<br />Internal A.I has<br /><ul><li>Complex traffic system
