Improving the intersection which has a lot of accident and analysing the effect using DSLog
Korea Transportation Safety Authority
Yangyang street No.3 in Kangwon Province, South Korea is a high accident area according to the slope way. There is not many traffic, but neck phenomena of vehicles frequently occur because of its geometric structure. Moreover there is the peculiar-shaped No.5 in Nonsan city of Chungcheongnam-do and there are a lot of accidents happened. To improve these intersection problem, the present situation and improved situation of the merging traffic, road marking, traffic lights and position of stop line etc. have been implemented, and that was used for decision-making and meeting to explain to local residents. The driving test via simulator was conducted and the improved result was confirmed by analyzing the DS log value.

Simulation for pipe plant facility
Kusakabe Electric & Machinery Co., Ltd.
The company sells plant equipments mainly to their clients oversea. Because plant equipments come in all sizes, when they are combined to form one big plant, it may look entirely different from what is shown on the company brochure depending on what combination of equipments are used. UC-win/Road was the perfect answer. By creating a VR data of the finished plant, they were not only able to get a much better picture of its size but also confirm the operation of the machineries within the plant, thus helping them confirm the size and other details of deliverables before they are built.
