Abstract

Urban planning requires proper coordination with infrastructure design, in which user's perception and behavior are the base. To solve problems of traffic and mobility in planning hearts of the cities, new approach to virtual reality visualization and new tool, namely driving simulator, are proposed. This paper presents the current application of virtual reality and driving simulator in road safety research. The future promising applications in the area of urban design are also discussed, especially for mobility problems solving, but also for the validation of complex urban projects. Virtual reality simulation is the most promising tool for analyzing the interaction between designed road infrastructure (street, road pavement, sidewalks, biking path, pedestrians walks, and all visible road architecture elements), vehicle and road user (driver). The discussion is concluded with emphasizing great potentials of the new emerging science of visualization, presenting the successive studies results.
