Virtual reality technologies and devices are becoming more popular and affordable nowadays. A number of applications that support virtual reality is increasing in different fields. This project is dedicated to the modeling of virtual urban driving by developing mobile simulator, that allows user to practice driving skills and learn traffic laws. In order to use this application, the following devices are required: Android smartphone that has appropriate sensors (gyroscope and accelerometer), mobile head-mounted display and steering wheel controller. In this project virtual world is generated procedurally by using greedy tile location algorithm with backjumping, while the restrictive planes and cubes were suggested and implemented to control traffic laws observing. Game artificial intelligence system based on waypoints was proposed and implemented to simulate other road users’ (cars and pedestrians) realistic behavior. A set of 3D-models was prepared for this project implementation (roads configurations, cars, pedestrians, city environment elements, traffic laws attributes, etc.). Unity game engine was chosen for this project implementation. Programming language is C#. The paper contains 50 pages, 3 sections, 45 illustrations, 3 tables, 25 bibliography items. Keywords: virtual reality, driving simulator, city car driving, traffic laws observing control, artificial intelligence system, mobile head-mounted display, Unity, steering wheel controller.
