Experience being there
PaleBlue Motion Platform


PaleBlue motion simulators are light-weight optimized solutions allowing for experiencing full motion. In PaleBlue simulators, the movement is synchronised with a visual display of the outside world. Motion platforms can provide movement using a number of degrees of freedom (DOF). These are the three rotational degrees of freedom (roll, pitch, yaw) and three translational or linear degrees of freedom (surge, heave, sway).

2-DoF Motion Platform

This type is also called "Two degrees of freedom". It is an entry-level motion platform for simple industry or entertainment simulators. 2-DoF is the right choice for applications when vertical movements or accelerations are not critically important: excavator simulator, truck, loader, train and others vehicles. But it can be used as simplified flight and racing simulators. Here we use AC or DC motors with reducers depending on max-load requirements.

3-DoF Motion Platform

These types of platforms have 3 levers which are capable of translating pitch, roll and heave motions to a real life and it is medium price solution for your simulator. Compared to the 2-DoF platforms 3-DoF has higher performance to price ratio and better fidelity of vertical accelerations. It can used as full-equipped racing installation or advanced bus/trolleybus training system.

6-DoF Motion Platform

This type is known as full motion and provides outstanding experience with extremely high payload capabilities. In addition to described above pitch, roll and heave axes is supports yaw, sway, surge. It can be used for most challenging projects or situations when it is required high precision motion. This types of platforms are perfect solution for professional vessel/flight simulators. Here we use complete 3-fase AC reducer-motors with VFD in case of usual ranges or linear DC actuators to provide extended range of translations.

Custom Motion Platform

As well as the traditional types we develop various custom motion platforms. 2-DoF and 3-DoF can be upgraded with additional rotation axis or we can design and produce platform for 360 degrees rotation for all three main axes (upside-down revolution). If you need a special type of simulator or a revision on our products, please contact our technical managers.

PaleBlue Technology

Motion Simulations Classification


In industrial motion simulators, the user is controlling the vehicle. For example, PaleBlue crane simulators and heavy equipment simulators.
PaleBlue motion platforms come in a number of configurations from 2 to 6 degrees of freedom. PaleBlue systems are lightweight and modern, that makes them also very affordable alternatives to traditional heavy-weight solutions.

Usage

Motion platforms are used in a number of fields, from engineering to equipment testing and training.
The ability to link a computer-based dynamic model of a particular system to physical motion gives the user the ability to feel how the vehicle would respond to control inputs without the need to construct expensive prototypes.

Testing

This type of testing allows the simulation of “seeded faults” (i.e. an intentional hydraulic leak, software error, or computer shutdown) which serve to validate that an equipment’s redundant design features work as intended. The trainee can also help identify system deficiencies such as inadequate or missing warning indicators, or even unintended control stick motion.

Realism

This testing is necessary to simulate extremely high risk events that cannot be conducted in flight but nonetheless must be demonstrated. While 6 degree-of-freedom (DOF) motion is not necessary for this type of testing, the visual screen allows the trainee to operate the equipment while the faults are simultaneously triggered.

Mobile and Lightweight

PaleBlue motion simulators represent the new generation in platforms: lightweight, easy-to-use, and highly mobile. This makes PaleBlue solutions in motion platform the right choice for many industries and uses: industrial, educational, operational - spanning from oil and gas equipment to construction.
