MPSim Multimedia Gallery

Here you find videos of research work carried out within the Motion Perception and Simulation research group.

Motion simulators

The videos below show the CyberMotion Simulator - a modified robot arm - and the CableRobot Simulator - a unique motion simulation concept.

QVis: Dynamic motion visualization

The videos below shows QVis, a program that can be used to visualize simulator motion in various ways. For more information, visit our Opens internal link in current windowQVis webpage.

Motion Cueing Algorithms

The following two videos show a comparison between two different motion cueing algorithms, a perception-based MCA and a filter-based MCA. The comparison is shown for two simulated car maneuvers: a 180 degree u-turn manuever and an acceleration-deceleration maneuver. 

Control behavior in simulation

In the video below, an octorotor is teleoperated from inside the MPI CyberMotion Simulator, while the pilot is exposed to motion feedback.
