3D Forklift Simulator Coursework Video

Advanced Graphics Module. Grade: 79.70% (FIRST CLASS)

The aim of this concept was to design and implement an environment with a fork lift truck that can be operated by the user. The controls needed to be simple and easy to use and the driver must operate the truck so that it can pick up boxes and place them on a stack. If a box is not placed correctly on the stack it should fall off. The simulator required several viewpoints including behind the vehicle, in the drivers position and a top down view. These have been implemented as well as a fully rotatable camera and infinitely random generated boxes that can all interact with each other.
