Paper Abstract

The UCLA Driving Simulation Laboratory has recently been updated to provide for a 360 degree motion picture portrayal around a full size car. The build-up includes a rear screen which duplicated the existing front 8 ft. radius cylindrical screen and two side screens to fill the gap between front and rear scenes. The motion picture frame speed from the four projectors required to project the images is synchronized with the speed of rollers under the rear wheels of the car. A vehicle was constructed to carry four cam-eras at highway speeds with no visual obstructions in the 360 degree scene being filmed. Front and rear scenes are filmed with Vista Vision cameras equipped with "Dimension 150" optics while the side scenes are taken with 16 mm cameras.
