Abstract : The advent of supermaneuverable flight trajectories for high performance aircraft opens up new research areas involving the human factors effects on pilots when they fly these unusual flight scenarios. There exists a need to conduct studies in motion simulators such as centrifuges to investigate how these unusual motion fields effect humans both physiologically and how they impact the ability of a pilot to perform a mission. The dynamic control of a centrifuge simulator to emulate supermaneuverable flight trajectories is studied in this paper by considering the centrifuge simulator as a 3 revolute axes robot manipulator....
