VI-MotionCueing, developed in collaboration with the University of Padova (Italy), is based on an innovative algorithm which, given vehicle translational accelerations and rotational velocities, converts them into admissible movements of the driver’s seat, for any motion platform architecture.
VI-MotionCueing is based on Model Predictive Control (MPC), a methodology that allows implementing a mathematical model of the vestibular motion perception and of the platform structure.
Compared to the so-called “classical” approach, the usage of MPC allows to limit the platform motion without affecting the driver perception. Moreover, the typical shortcomings of the “classical approach”, among which the generation of opposite sign acceleration (motion inversion) and the necessity of empirical tuning, are overcome.
Further advantages are:
