To determine traffic and pedestrian safety in a newly constructed area, the project owner needed a clear visual to present to the impacted property owners and perform comparative investigations. The project team at Nissin realized that they needed comprehensive reality modeling technology to generate a model of the existing site and create driving animations from the driver’s perspective.
They selected ContextCapture to create a reality mesh of the area and imported that into OpenRoads to integrate road design data, including sidewalks. To create a simulated driving environment, Nissin used LumenRT, incorporating passenger cars, buses, and pedestrians. Using Bentley’s applications, they eliminated the need for modeling buildings, saving significant associated resource hours and costs. Through dynamic modeling and visualization, they generated a highly realistic driving simulation enabling comparative investigation of the safety and driving convenience with a high degree of accuracy.
