Using a newly-developed simulator capsule that is currently being tested, researchers at the DLR Institute of Robotics and Mechatronics are taking another step towards the most realistic simulations possible. Fast turning manoeuvres such as spinning in a car or helicopter are just as possible as horizontal roll in an aircraft. During the simulation, the passenger is almost completely enclosed and sees the virtual landscape or road not on a small screen, but as a stereo projection on the entire inner surface of the capsule. In addition to this 3D view, authentic background noise is supplied via loudspeakers. The individual instrument packages are complete units with control instruments, a seat and loud speakers and can also be used separately as a static simulator.
