Rail Vehicle True Q® Dynamic Motion Seats for Simulators

High Speed Rail Dynamic Motion Seats

High Speed Rail Dynamic Motion Seats

ACME’s dynamic motion seats are a combination of vehicle crew seats with electric motion components built inside the seat. The seats look, feel, and function like actual crew seats, and provide cues to emulate sensations felt during the vehicle or in-flight operations.
ACME seats translate simulator acceleration signals into realistic, convincing motion. True Q® seats provide a higher level of cueing, where the motion IS training.

The seats use a patented electric system with individual motion plates/pans, providing cues directly to the crew’s body.  It’s the effect of multiple channels in the seat working seamlessly together that provides complete, realistic, immersive cueing.

The COTS core motion system inside is adaptable to any external seat shape or form so we can provide motion seats for nearly any Military & Commercial simulator.

In fact, we’ve produced dynamic motion seats for training systems worldwide including land vehicles such as locomotives, and Humvee-trucks, helicopters including AH-64, Multiple H-60 models, NH90, CV-22s, and fighter jets including like M346, F-15, F-16, & T-50.

ACME’s True Q® motion seats are an ideal way to cost-effectively add realistic motion cueing to any Sim.  Motion Seats are much less expensive that motion platforms and offer much greater cueing than seat or platform shakers and ACME seats can provide unique cues such as yaw twist simply not available in platforms or shakers.

The ACME True Q® Dynamic Motion Seat (DMS) is a cost effective method of providing motion cues to a pilot or other vehicle operator. The dynamic seat adds inertial cues experienced in the operational system, whether its an aircraft, ground vehicle or other platform. Motion cues enhance the immersive experience of simulation, enabling better training and operator experience. The Dynamic Motion Seat delivers state-of-the-art performance providing vibration and motion cues in five independent axes of control, giving you a full 6 DOF system. It uses three directions of movement – vertical, longitudinal, and lateral plus it has differential surge that combines with sway motion to replicate roll.

The realistic motion from a Dynamic Motion Seat links the crew’s visual perceptions with the tactile perceptions — a critical capability for situational awareness. With True Q® seats, the crew feels the aircraft g-loading, and vibrations, maximizing simulator realism and training effectiveness. The critical difference with ACME True Q® is that students do not just feel the motion, but train using the motion. Using the ACME Dynamic Motion Seat cueing, crews can train to recognize and rapidly respond to the signature motion sensations. ACME’s proven designs, vast seat program expertise, and dedication to customer support means less risk to the customer.

Rail Simulation Training Value

The ACME True Q® Dynamic Motion Seats (DMS) set a new standard of value in the simulation world. The Vehicle DMS provides a motion training solution with the highest value including simulated feel of:

  • Vehicle pitch, roll, and yaw
  • Sudden bump or vehicle problems
  • Rail rumble, road expansion joint bumps, on rail hazards
  • Vehicle malfunctions such as wheel problem or engine hesitations
  • Obstruction impacts, Car connection cues
  • Turning and stopping cues
