Universal Motion Simulator – evoking fear in a pilot

Created at Australia’s Deakin University, this is a barebones cockpit attached to a seven-metre robotic arm.  As explained in the video it provides a safe but realistic simultion of a pilot’s experience, including mechanical failures and crash scenarios. The system monitors the pilots functions to discover if they have what it takes.
