During the process of procuring new trains for the city of Liverpool, Virtual Reality will be used for the first time. The trains can thus be explored by the customer in life-size. Various concepts have been simulated in close co-operation with the industrial designers at Nose and support the decision-making in the numerous workshops. The simulation was also used locally in Liverpool to convince various stakeholders of the procurement.
The simulation has been created with Unity, later with Unreal and it contains many interactive features. Special attention was given to a realistic visualization of the materials and the light mood.
