This project addresses technical, ergonomic and product image issues associated with the redesign of the Flight Control Laboratory Simulator at the Technion Faculty of Aeronautics and Space, which is used primarily for research and development.
The hypothesis at the root of this paper was that a credible, useful and reasonably authentic cockpit environment may be produced if the simulated cockpit contains a minimal number of “typical” representative visual cues of a cockpit. Sufficiently high level of simulation fidelity will be achieved despite the fact that the resulting physical environment is not similar to any one of the real world samples.
Main objectives of the research were:
Conceptual 3D model of the proposed simulator cabin was designed. Feasibility of obtaining sufficient simulation fidelity by identification and implementation of a few essential elements in the simulator cabin has been established.
