Flight & Drive Simulation – Application Examples

Motion Platform for Flight Simulators

To train a pilot’s skill-based behaviour in a simulator, the Van Halteren Technologies 6dof motion platform provides the essential motion cues, replicating the movements of a real aircraft.

Motion Platform for Flight Simulators
Our 6dof motion platforms can be used in both fixed-wing and helicopter simulators up to level D. These platforms are specifically designed to provide the best possible motion cues to train pilots to use this motion information in real-life.

Driving simulator

Sustained accelerations and more intense frequency content are two characteristics that distinguish driving simulation from flight simulation. These differences result in specific requirements for the motion platform.

Motion Platforms for Driving Simulators

The best solution available to accurately generate cues that are typical for driving simulation is a high-performance electric hexapod motion system combined with a motion table providing X-Y-axis movements. Together with the Motion Cueing Software, this motion platform delivers a high-performance, cost-effective and flexible solution for your research or training needs.

Cabin Emergency Evacuation Trainers (CEET)

A Cabin crew trainer provides a dynamic and realistic training environment to train the airplane cabin crew for emergency situations. Vital cues provided by the motion system contribute to the crew’s situational awareness and increase their stress to a more realistic level.

Cabin Emergency Evacuation Trainers (CEET), provide training to cabin crew members, who face an increasingly stressful working environment. High workload, rapidly changing onboard situations, emergency procedures and hazardous circumstances such as heavy turbulence, often conflict with the requirement for friendliness and on board service.

The CEET motion systems are designed to duplicate the real aircraft behaviour to the maximum extent possible. Training institutes recognize a distinct training effectiveness for the cabin crew when realistic motion acceleration cues (versus static positions) are added.

CEET single aisle motion systems are available for narrow and wide body aircraft type

Special projects

Van Halteren Technologies is the right partner when it comes to developing customized motion systems. If the standard 6dof eMotion and 3dof cMotion solutions do not meet your exact requirements, we we are able to design a customized motion system specifically meeting your needs.

Within the eMotion and cMotion portfolio our 6DOF and 6DOF motion platforms can be used for every imaginable vehicle simulation that mimics the characteristics of standard vehicles like trucks, trains, heavy equipment, and aircrafts. When these motion systems are not able to meet your requirements, we are able to design a customized motion system specifically meeting your needs.
