Langwallner, B. Schlüsselberger, R. Bles, W. Wentink, M. Publication year 2007 Abstract The very unique and novel motion platform DESDEMONA was taken into start-up operation early this year. This next generation motion platform allows 6-DoF movement combined with the capability of producing sustained g-forces. These features make the simulator extremely valuable for future flight simulation applications as well as for disorientation research and training. In order to use the equipment for different kinds of applications advanced motion filters have to be developed. The success of Desdemona will strongly be dominated by the quality of these motion filters. In our approach efficient numerical optimization techniques are applied to gain control laws for given real acceleration profiles. Additionally human perception models can be applied and included in the optimization sequence. Two results are discussed within this paper. The first result concerns the possible improvement of 3-DoF human centrifuge profiles, when using 6-DoF Desdemona capability. The second one deals with real measured car driving data (left turn on intersection) and also includes a motion perception model. Basically, the feasibility of this approach can be confirmed and the results are promising.
