Main Focus

In the  psychophysical experiments are performed using a state of the art motion simulator.  As a member of the “” group my scope is to develop control algorithms for the MPS and to integrate control and measurement devices into the hard- and software framework depending on the scientific question.

Areas of Interest: control theory, perception of vestibular and visual cues and how a better understanding of the underlying processes may be used to improve simulation technology.
