  • Patent number: 11014000
    Abstract: A simulation system includes a processor including hardware. The processor performs an information acquisition process of acquiring position information of a user wearing a head mounted display to cover his/her field of view; a virtual space setting process of setting a virtual space where a moving body corresponding to the user is arranged and set based on the acquired position information; a moving body process of moving the moving body in the virtual space based on the acquired position information; and a display process of generating a display image on the head mounted display. In the virtual space setting process, the processor sets the virtual space such that a first moving body group and a second moving body group are arranged and set in a common virtual field of the virtual space.
