A novel interactive system that incorporates different technologies aiming to allow users participate in an immersive driving experience in virtual environments
The system simulates the collecting process of objects (e.g. reeds in Lake Stymphalia, which can be afterwards composted and converted into pellets). In a virtual reality environment the system presents a simulation of a physical landscape (e.g. lake), with the front part of a vehicle being illustrated at the bottom of the display. The user directs the machine using augmented controls (gear, steering wheel) in order to fulfill a mission (e.g. clean the lake from large areas of reed-beds, collect Christmas presents, etc.).
