Student Builds Incredible 6 Degrees-of-freedom Motion Platform.
Dec 21, 2014
As a semester-end project, Tyler Kroymann and Robert Dee, two Mechanical Engineering seniors at San Jose State University, built a 6DoF motion simulator. The 6DoF, or degrees-of-freedom, Stewart platform they're using is a proof-of-concept prototype which uses two axes as output from a PID controller. The controller uses a resistive touch panel mounted on the platform as the input.
