      Equipments Details


      Whether your research involves working in a high rise office building, exploring your newly designed structure, understanding human responses to changing environmental conditions or exploring people's physiological responses to the built environment, we can provide the multi-disciplinary capability to fully explore human-environment interactions.

      VSimulators at Bath - Key Features:

      - 3m x 4m self contained environment test chamber (supplied by Temperature Applied Sciences) which can be occupied by up to three occupants for extensive periods of time
      - a custom designed motion platform, with freedom of movement in three directions (designed and developed by Servotest Systems, in collaboration with the University of Bath) (0.01Hz – 6HZ+, and amplitudes of up to +/- 400mm)
      - projected 3D and 2D virtual reality (images are projected onto the walls), programmed to adjust the visual and audio sensory output according to the time of day and building height (designed and developed by Antycip Simulation, in collaboration with the University of Bath)
      - motion tracking of occupants
      - physiological recording of human factor responses

      Environmental Control Features:
      The VSimulator facility at the University of Bath offers precise environmental controls, as follows
      - Air Temperature : 15 to 40 degrees centigrade
      - Humidity : 20% to 80%
      - Horizontal Illuminance : 50 to 2000 lux
      - Colour Temperature : 2000 to 6500 K
      - Lighting illuminance: 50-2000 Lux
      - Radiant temperature: 5 – 40 degrees centigrade
