Motion Platform Specifications:
The Eleetus Motion Platform is the foundation for all of our motion simulation products. Our motion platform blurs the line between professional and consumer. Boasting a huge range of motion and a near indestructible design, the Eleetus Motion Platform is ready for the long haul.
The eMotion Interface
Fully customizable motion.
The Eleetus Simulator is designed to accurately relay the relative G forces for all vehicles and aircraft. Part of what makes this possible is our proprietary motion interface. This is where the enthusiasts can fine tune the motion for any specific vehicle or aircraft to suite their training purposes.
Not sure where to start with motion tuning?
Don’t worry! Even with our standard settings, every car and plane will produce a unique motion experience representative of the vehicles real life G forces.
Motion tuning can be used to optimize the experience for any user. For those prone to motion sickness, the relative G forces can be reduced to almost zero. Seasoned drivers can raise the relative G forces to more closely match the sensations of their actual vehicle.
Save custom profiles.
The eMotion interface allows you to create infinite custom profiles for a variety of applications. These profiles can reflect specific vehicles setups and classes, as well as multiple skill levels and personal preferences.
Fictitious Forces: The Forces of Gravity
When a vehicle (including an aircraft) accelerates or decelerates, you experience a sensation of being pushed back into your seat (acceleration) or pushed forward (deceleration). If a vehicle corners or banks noticeably, one experiences a sensation of being pushed sideways. These sensations are a result of gravitational (G) forces, sometimes referred to as fictitious forces.
Our patented motion platform design works in exactly the same manner. Accelerate forwards, and the simulator will tilt backwards, causing the same sensation of pressure on your back as in a moving vehicle. Turn left, and the simulator will tilt to the right, causing a sensation of pressure on your right side, just as you would experience in an actual car.
The Patented Raised Fulcrum Design
The most significant advantage of the Eleetus Motion Platform is the patented raised and centered fulcrum technology. Unlike most systems that have the pivot point (fulcrum) placed under the user, our platform has a raised fulcrum that sits level with the users waist.
With the fulcrum of the motion platform placed in front of the rider, the pivot point can be raised as seen in the conical structure above. This moves the rider not only in the rotational plane of pitch and roll, but also in all three translational planes. Simulating more degrees of freedom nets higher fidelity.
The Advantage of Mounted Monitors
In non-VR applications the monitors on our simulators are mounted to the platform. Why?
- The majority of movement from our patented Eleetus motion platform exists to emulate gravitational (G) forces. We accomplish this by tilting the simulator in different directions.
- This ‘dynamic’ motion does not relate to the physical position of the vehicle or aircraft relative to level ground. Thus to realistically emulate G forces, the monitors need to move with you in order to keep the line of sight steady.
- If the vehicle or aircraft’s physical position relative to level ground is changing, the image on the screen will tilt to consistently match the given angle of the vehicle or aircraft.
