Self-driving cars are bound to be an increasingly normal aspect of the transportation ecosystem in the coming years, and in an effort to build up people's trust in the automated systems, Moove Lab has created an experience that turns people into self-driving vehicles. No, the experience doesn't turn people into androids — it uses a purpose built buggy on which people ride while wearing a VR headset that simulates the input autonomous vehicles receive when driving.
Moove Lab's vehicle is equipped with all the standard equipment on self-driving cars: a LIDAR scanner, a 3D stereo camera, and a high-performance computer, to name a few. Human users lie down in the relatively bare chassis, don a VR headset, grab the joystick at the front of the vehicle, and operate it using the input from these pieces of equipment.
