Knowledge of thresholds for perception of inertial motion is needed for the design of simulator motion filters. Experiments have generally been done to measure these thresholds in isolation, one motion at the time. In vehicle simulation however, several motions occur concurrently. In a flight simulator, both inertial and visual cues are provided...

Pilot perception models include detailed descriptions of the sensory dynamics involved in human spatial orientation. For example, the TNO Spatial Orientation model contains transfer functions of the visual and vestibular system (semicircular canals and otoliths). In our previous attempts to apply this model for the validation of simulator motion...

The three Dutch research institutes NLR, TNO and TU Delft are collaborating to perform a multi-simulator follow-up study aimed at investigating the influence of yaw and translational motion cues in helicopter- and general flight-simulation. In this study, new experimental results will be combined with pilot modeling. Two experiments will be...

The goal of this paper is to give an overview and some practical examples of the Motion Perception Toolbox developed by TNO (Netherlands Organization for Applied Research) as a freeware Matlab Simulink library. The MPT library provides a documented set of building blocks that model human perception and are easily coupled to existing simulation...

Unsuccessful recovery from unusual flight attitudes, or “airplane upset”, is considered an important factor in civil aviation accidents. It is generally recognized that there is a clear need for enhanced training of recovery procedures from unusual flight attitudes, i.e. situations where an aircraft unintentionally exceeds the parameters of the...

In centrifuge simulators pilots experience the G-forces and fast G-onsets encountered in the real fighter aircraft. The motion cueing principle that drives these simulators is based on creating G-forces by increasing the centripetal force of the centrifuge through a rotation of the simulator arm. The centrifuge usually spins at a constant 1.4 G...

The aim of the collaborative European research project ‘Simulation of UPset Recovery in Aviation’ (SUPRA) is to develop breakthrough simulator technologies for teaching pilots to detect and recover from adverse flight upsets that could lead to unusual attitudes and loss-of-control. In the project, the high-performance research simulator...

The objective of the European research project SUPRA (Simulation of Upset Recovery in Aviation) is to develop technologies that eventually contribute to a reduction of risk of Loss of control - in flight (LOC-I) accidents, today's major cause of fatal accidents in commercial aviation. To this end the project developed novel concepts to improve...

This paper describes two simulator experiments studying how accurately pilots can judge and reproduce specific g loads and how their control behavior depends on the sensation of physical g loads during unusual attitude recovery. Seventeen commercial pilots participated. The first experiment shows that pilots tend to overestimate g loads,...

This paper investigates how pilots' control behavior and motion perception during a simulated roll maneuver depends on the level of normal g load using a centrifuge-based simulator. Fourteen commercial pilots participated in the study, actively controlling a series of coordinated bank angle changes between -30 and +30 degrees. By changing the...

Without visual feedback, humans perceive tilt when experiencing a sustained linear acceleration. This tilt illusion is commonly referred to as the somatogravic illusion. Although the physiological basis of the illusion seems to be well understood, the dynamic behavior is still subject to discussion. In this study, the dynamic behavior of the...

The European research project SUPRA (“Simulation of Upset Recovery in Aviation”) produced an extended aerodynamic model for simulation of a generic transport aircraft, capturing the key aircraft behavior beyond aerodynamic stall. As described in the current paper, a group of 11 test pilots with in-flight experience in stall conditions assessed...
