Students develop virtual reality safety project
Students from Stockwell Park School in south London have been working on a project to develop a 3D real-time virtual reality model to make people more aware of the risks associated with London's roads.
VisioNet is a unique project - the first in London funded by the Stockwell
URBAN II Programme, a European funded regeneration initiative. The model demonstrates road safety and urban landscape improvements on the Wandsworth Road.
"VisioNet is about young people understanding the importance of road safety and developing effective means of communicating these issues to their community," explains Jez Pellow from Enabling Concepts. "The use of technology as the communication tool is engaging as it features so strongly in young people's everyday lives.
"We feel that this model of learning and communicating could be replicated, and we would be interested in working in partnership with road safety officers to do so."
