(FR) SIMULATEUR DE VOL
Abstract
(EN)
A vehicle simulator in which a first motion platform (35) is driven in translation and rotation from a datum position. A simulator user station is positioned on the first motion platform, the user station defining a predetermined eyepoint position and a predetermined field of view from the eyepoint position relative to the user station. A display surface (37) is mounted on a second motion (38) platform so as to lie within the field of view, and the second motion platform (38) is driven to maintain a predetermined positional relationship between the eyepoint position and the display surface (37). An image is projected to be viewed from the eyepoint position via the display surface (37). The display surface is substantially spherical and the second motion platform (38) is driven, in response to translations of the eyepoint position, so that the location of the eyepoint position relative to the centre of the spherical display surface (37) is substantially constant and, in response to rotations of the first motion platform (35) about the eyepoint position, so that the second motion platform (38) is maintained substantially stationary. The display surface (45) extends to a perimeter that is outside the predetermined field of view for any possible rotations of the first motion system (35) about the eyepoint position.

On décrit un simulateur de véhicule dans lequel une première plateforme mobile (35) est entraînée en translation et en rotation depuis une position de référence. Une station de simulation d'utilisateur est placé sur la première plate-forme mobile, la station d'utilisateur définissant une position des yeux prédéterminée et un champ de vision prédéterminé vue depuis la position des yeux, par rapport à la station d'utilisateur. Une surface d'affichage (37) est montée sur une deuxième plate-forme mobile (38) de manière à être dans le champ de vision, et la deuxième plate-forme mobile (38) est entraînée de manière à maintenir une position relative prédéterminée entre la position des yeux et la surface d'affichage (37). Une image est projetée de manière à être observée depuis la position des yeux par l'intermédiaire de la surface d'affichage (37). La surface d'affichage est sensiblement sphérique et la deuxième plate-forme mobile (38) est entraînée en fonction des translations de la position des yeux, de sorte que la position des yeux par rapport au centre de la surface d'affichage sphérique (37) reste sensiblememt constante; ladite plate-forme est égalememt entraînée en fonction des rotations de la première plate-forme mobile (35) autour de la position des yeux, de sorte que cette deuxième plate-forme mobile (38) est maintenue sensiblement stationnaire. La surface d'affichage (45) s'étend jusqu'à un périmètre qui se trouve à l'extérieur du champ de vision prédéterminé pour toutes rotations éventuelles du premier système de rotation (35) autour de la position des yeux.
