Student: Vladimir Kovtunovskiy

Supervisor: Rimma Akhmetsafina

Faculty: Faculty of Computer Science

Educational Programme: Software Engineering (Bachelor)

Year of Graduation: 2016

The work is devoted to development of the mobile application for simulating flight in virtual reality. The task of simulation is one of the most important areas in the field of computer science, as it allows the user to immerse themselves in a new environment or emulate an event that may not always be possible in real life. In recent years, due to the rapid development of technology and the growth of computing power, have achieved new successes in the tasks simulation using virtual reality. This technology allows for radically new level of user immersion in virtual reality. With the advent of Google Cardboard, virtual reality has become available to the mass user, allowing to use this technology not only for scientific purposes, but also for entertainment tasks aimed at a broad audience. The paper presents an approach for creating mobile applications with the technology of virtual reality simulation for air travel. The program was developed for the Android platform using the tool Unity3D and C # programming language. The program simulates the air route from London to San Francisco and includes up to 10 attractions along the way. The possibility of moving the route and view the panoramic images. The program includes a three-dimensional model and uses data from the service Google Maps and Google Street View. The paper contains 37 pages, 3 sections, 12 images, 2 tables, 21 references, 4 appendices. Keywords: virtual reality, flight trip simulation, Unity3D, Google Cardboard.
