This paper suggests a control system for a moving base system in a planned driving simulator. The moving base system will give the driver the characteristic acceleration cues by rotations around two orthogonal axes. Each of these rotations is controlled by a position servomechanism. A fifth-order filter is part of the control system to reduce errors in phase and amplitude. A mathematical model of the moving base system and the position servomechanism is described. Computer simulation is used to find the frequency and time-domain characteristics of the control system. The simulation results are acceptable but it must be emphasized that these have been reached with several simplifying assumptions. Hence, practical tests must be performed to evaluate the suggested control system. /TRRL/
