Cognition Design

User Survey with Virtual Reality Simulation for Acceptance Improvement

Future mobility needs design. The change or new planning of infrastructure usually extends over long periods of time. In order to integrate future users into development processes as early as possible, new forms of representation are needed that can incorporate the relationship between space, lighting, movement and information. Therefore, Peter Eckart and Kai Vöckler set up a research collaboration with Melissa Le-Hoa Vo (Goethe University Frankfurt). Together with cognitive psychologist and her team, they have explored the possible applications of virtual reality in design and planning processes in the field of mobility. The project (HA project no. 817/19-137) was funded by the State of Hessen and HOLM research promotion under the measure “Innovations in the field of logistics and mobility” of the Hessian Ministry of Economics, Energy, Transport and Housing.
