Brief description A haptic-based immersive motion platform for human performance evaluation. A haptic-based immersive motion platform for human performance evaluation: This project aims to establish a motion platform capable of combining continuous centrifugal rotation and large linear displacement with an additional five degrees of motion. The system will house a human subject at the end of a large serial robot similar to a human arm, which can rotate continuously about its base. The robot arm will be installed on a large linear axis enabling the simulation of movements and accelerations along a straight path as well as rotation provided by other axes of the robot. The motion platform will comprise audio and visual devices, and haptic-based control mechanisms, for example a steering wheel and pedals or a helicopter cyclic, to provide a number of human immersed scenarios for driving/flying training and human perception evaluation.
