Vsimulators: Human factors simulation for motion and serviceability in the built environment

Research output: Contribution to conferencePaperpeer-review


The two-site VSimulators facility at the Universities of Bath and Exeter will provide simulation capability that is worldwide unique and far beyond anything available in the UK, to address critical issues of human engagement with the built environment. The two sites will share a common mission: to enable fundamental and applied research into human interactions in and with moving civil structures with potential to transform research methods across a wide range of disciplines. Between them the two simulators will provide motion capabilities in all axes across a wide range of amplitudes and frequencies. However, unlike any other facility, VSimulators will also simulate a full range of environmental, motion, audio and visual cues in real-world settings. In addition to research on civil infrastructure, the facility has uses in a wide range of disciplines including healthcare.
