Abstract

this paper, the intuition approach in the design and redesign of the environmental friendly innovative aircraft cabin simulator is presented.. The aircraft cabin simulator is a testbed that used for European Project SEAT (Smart tEchnologies for Stress free Air Travel). The SEAT project aims to develop a new radical approach through integration of cabin systems with multimedia features. The aircraft cabin simulator is fully designed and built by us. The simulator consists of a small scale cabin-like testing platform, an inventory section, a simulation section and a control section. The built up size for the simulator is 227 m3. The interior of the aircraft cabin consists of an economy class section, a business class section, a galley and a lavatory.. Each passenger seat and the lavatory are provided with a personal entertainment touch screen monitor. An inventory section is used to store the testing related equipments. A sky-like projection environment is created at the external location. In addition, the simulator is built with an innovative low-cost motion platform. The motion platform is used to simulate the flight environment such as taxi, taking off, turbulence, descending and landing. The control section is fully equipped with a state of art computer system that is used to control and monitor the simulator remotely. The aim of the paper is to describe the intuition approach in the design and redesign of the aircraft cabin simulator.
