Participants needed

The MPI for Biological Cybernetics is looking for participants for scientific studies investigating human perception. Click on the picture for more information.

The CableRobot Simulator

The in-house developed novel CableRobot Simulator is capable of generating unique motion trajectories using - as its name suggests - a cable suspension system. This prototype will be used in perception and cognition research.
The robot is suspended on eight cables – each cable is driven by a powerful motor. In total, these motors hold the power of remarkable 473 PS. The strained simulator cabin consists of carbon fiber rods, which were made especially for this purpose. They can be arbitrarily controlled to either launch the cabin into a wild roller coaster ride using the entire space of 5 x 8 x 5 m³, or perform movements that cannot even be noticed by the passenger.
Its large workspace and dynamic capabilities make the simulator suitable for a wide spectrum of VR applications, including driving/flight simulation as well as investigation of basic perception processes in humans.
