2006 – Driving Simulator Scene Ettinger Straße (AUDI AG)
This detailed realtime model of the 2km long Ettinger Straße in Ingolstadt was created during my internship at AUDI. The goal was to find new methods for creating driving simulator scenarios, and to build a test track.
Over 200 reference photos were taken and official geomapping data was used for modelling. The simulator software back then didn't support shadow maps, so all of the lighting effects had to be baked into vertex colors.
The resulting scenario was more detailed than any other track that had been available to the simulator team until then.
