A study was carried out to evaluate the ability of a simulator facility to represent the motion environment experienced by a truck driver while performing typical driving maneuvers. Software was developed to command simulator motions in response to a truck model computer program. Measurements of translational acceleration and rotational velocity generated by the simulator's motion drive system were obtained. The predicted driver motion sensations in the truck and in the simluator were generated by a vestibular model and were compared with favorable results.
