Recently, the proportion of rental cars overseas has increased due to frequent travel cultures. So accidents due to poor driving by foreigners are also increasing. For example, Japan uses a Right-hand traffic system unlike Korea’s left-hadn traffic system. Therefore, according to this article, On April 10, 2016, a Korean family touring Japan was involved in a car accident due to poor rental car driving. 6 family members were seriously injured in this accident. The unconscious victims were transferred via a helicopter from the accident site to Oita University Hospital for treatment. Toprevent global thinking, we designed a VR program allowing us to experience driving in other countries through VR rather than practicing in large space. Withthis VR, we can practice various cases againstaccidents by different driving points, signals, experiencing lane changes, practicing right turns and curbs, making stops at train tracks, crossing centerlinesto enter stores and parking practice. This VR program will ensure the people not familiar with other countries using the opposite handle can study about havingdifferent road signs and driving ahead on the left or right lane. So that lets users not feel uneasy about driving incountries with an opposite drive system.
