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...

Desdemona has a fully gimbaled cabin that can, additionally, move vertically plus or minus 1 meter and slide horizontally along an 8 meter track. The track rotates around a central axis, providing a 4 meter long centrifuge arm that can be used to generate sustained accelerations at the cabin. This unique simulator requires specially designed...

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...

The importance of motion perception knowledge for flight simulation is widely recognized. The development and tuning of motion filters relies on understanding the human motion perception mechanisms and its limitations. Particularly interesting for flight simulation is the study of visual-vestibular coherence zones. Coherence zones refer to...

Following a previous study in the Simona simulator on perception of coherent visual and inertial cues in a flight simulator, an experiment is performed in the Desdemona simulator to investigate the influence of the frequency of visual and inertial stimuli on the limits of the perceived coherence zone. The coherence zone is defined as the range...

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...
