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 MPI CyberMotion Simulator was developed at the Max Planck Institute for Biological Cybernetics as a novel alternative to traditional motion simulators. It is based on a commercial six-axes serial robot originally designed for use in industries as manipulator.
In order to simulate realistic virtual environments and provide the illusion of moving through those environments, scientists in the Cyberneum have so far used a variety of different hardware setups and software libraries.
