Motion Controlled Sphere and Tumbler Rooms
Prolucid Technologies Inc

An application for controlling two rooms, where a test subject sits inside, with full programmable motion sequences for operator use and subject data logging.



This application controls two rooms, one spherical and one cylindrical. A test subject sits inside the room and is subjected to various movements. These movements are programmable, repeatable and involve multiple axis of control of the entire room and chair occupied. For research purposes, the subject can be connected to various monitoring sensors to record symptoms and feedback during the motion tests. We built a solution in LabVIEW that communicated with emerson drive controllers for the motion control and logging over modbus. As well, we used a simple USB DAQ device to allow correlated data of sensors from the test subject that the operator has flexibility to connect up various sensors depending on the test they need to perform.
