Feel the Motion with Virtual Reality Flight Simulator

Researchers at Auburn University are exploring a new means of flight simulation with a motion-based virtual reality flight simulator that allows testing flight control by feeling the motion of an aircraft.

“This equipment gives us the opportunity to provide potential partners like the U.S. Army or U.S. Navy with an unprecedented way of conducting simulations, but it also provides us with an opportunity to investigate new means of conducting flight simulation itself," said Umberto Saetti , Assistant Professor of Aerospace Engineering. "We look forward to this new world of flight simulation and the endless research opportunities it brings.”
