Auburn University is home to possibly the world’s first set of motion-base virtual reality flight simulators to be used for research in an academic institution.
Recently installed in aerospace engineering’s Extended Reality Flight Simulation and Control Lab under the direction of Auburn University Assistant Professor Umberto Saetti, two motion-base VR simulators—which replicate multiple forms of rotorcraft and fixed-wing aircraft—will be used for immersive simulations that make use of extended reality to study human-machine interaction, advanced flight control laws and innovative pilot cueing methods.
