Learning to fly with VR glasses and flight simulator with motion platform

A special prize was awarded to Prof. Dr. Guido Schuster from the ICOM Institute for Communication Systems. Together with VRMotion AG from Schaffhausen, the ICOM Institute for Communication Systems has developed the world’s first Virtual Reality (VR) Motion Simulator for aircraft and helicopter training.

The combination of mechanical movement, VR glasses and a physical-mathematical inner ear model makes flying a physical experience that even trained pilots can barely distinguish from reality.
