London CGI firm scores DON'T-HIT-the-PEDESTRIAN test contract

DSA inks deal with animators for hazard-perception exams

Remote control for virtualized desktops

The Driving Standards Agency (DSA) has awarded animation firm Jelly a contract for CGI technology.

DSA said it met with the SME last October to identify new technologies that could be used to refresh its hazard perception test. The agency started a formal procurement process in January and two early examples of CGI clips were published on the DSA You Tube channel for comment.

Rosemary Thew, chief executive of the DSA, said: "The hazards presented in the current clips are still relevant but the image quality is not as clear or defined as the quality available today. We are looking forward to presenting clips that are fresh and up-to-date.

"The use of computer-generated images means that we can include situations with vulnerable road users such as children, cyclists, and motorcyclists without risk."

The agency had previously cancelled a tender for 3D animation software for use in the driving theory test's hazard perception section because it wanted to work with Nottingham University, which had been carrying out some research in this area. But the DSA told Government Computing at the time that there was likely to be another tender in the future.
