Design and Instrumentation of a Vehicle Driving Simulator 950168
The objective of this paper is to develope a motion base for the vehicle driving simulator. Kinematic analysis are carried out to obtain maximum strokes and velocities of hydraulic actuators. Hydraulic control forces of the actuators are estimated by inverse dynamic analysis. Finally, an optimal design is performed to find attachment points of the actuators so that control forces are minimized. A control logic for the motion base is developed to make the motion base follow the given reference signals. The control logic is implemented on a digital signal processor(DSP) board.
