Development of Semi-Interface Motorcycle Simulator (SiMS)
Keywords:Counter-steering, Motorcycle, Semi-interface, Simulator
Recently, studies concerning motorcycle have been an overwhelming area of research interest. As an alternative to the real world assessment, researchers have utilized motorcycle simulator as a workstation to conduct studies in the motorcycle niche area. This paper deal with the development of a new motorcycle simulator named Semi-Interface Motorcycle Simulator (SiMS). Combination of Computer Aided Design (CAD) and Finite Element Analysis (FEA) software made it possible to design and simulates the motorcycle simulatorâ€™s conceptual design before being fabricated. The SiMS setup not only provides a near-to-real and immerse motorcycle riding experience on a super sport motorcycle model, but it also allows safer high speed motorcycle simulations to be conducted in a controlled environment that is portable and ergonomically easier to transport to various venues.
