TUPA in the Mobility Show

At the 2023 Seoul Mobility Show( , we exhibited the multi-agent metaverse platform on behalf of KAIST Cho Chun Sik Mobility Graduate School. The KAIST campus was made into a virtual environment for the children who visited our booth and the experience of exploring the campus by walking, running, and driving in the virtual environment.
The self-driving car developed by Prof. Dongsuk Kum( in our department used the campus as a test bed and trained as a safer vehicle. This is physically time-consuming and costly. Thousands of scenarios can be tested without limit by building a virtual environment, and situations that are very difficult in real life can be created in the virtual environment. These abnormal driving behaviors become very important input data for autonomous vehicles.
