In order to develop recommendations for the use of motion in ground vehicle simulators, a thorough literature review was conducted. Literature on motion cueing theories as well as basic and applied research in the use of motion in simulation was examined. A particular focus was paid to research on the effects of motion cueing on transfer of training from both ground vehicle and aircraft simulators. From the information gathered in the literature reviews on motion cueing, recommendations for the use of motion in ground vehicle training simulation were developed. In addition to motion cueing factors, theories and applied research on motion sickness were also investigated. As motion sickness holds the potential to significantly affect performance both in a simulator and in an actual ground vehicle, it was considered important to develop recommendations for the use of simulator motion to mitigate these effects. Guidelines were developed from the information gathered in this review for the use of simulator motion in training to diminish the effects of motion sickness.
