VSimulators - Sectors

VSimulators offers the opportunity for multi-disciplinary research and innovation. Click on links below to explore some of the ways our partners plan to use the VSimulators facilities.

Built Environment

VSimulators support research in transforming construction, modular design and reductions in embodied energy, by placing people at the centre of their customised design prior to construction.

Human Movement, Health & Wellbeing

VSimulators supports extensive research into how people move, balance and respond to their surroundings, creating intervention programmes, environment designs and equipment to enable people to live independent and fulfilling lives.

Vibration Engineering

VSimulators can uniquely support research into vibration analysis of structures, machinery and other engineered facilities, advising on the proposed design before starting construction.

Immersive Reality

VSimulators offers state of the art virtual reality technology aligned to a motion platform and environmental conditions, creating a realistic, immersive experience for exploration by one or more people.

Data Science and Analytics

VSimulators can handle multiple feeds of raw information contributing to the development of new ways to visually interpret, analyse and use complex or multiple feeds of data.

Human Factors and Comfort

VSimulators enables research into the factors affecting human comfort, perception and responses to their environment. This will enable people to be placed at the centre of future design.


VSimulators is an ideal platform for research related to acceleration, deceleration and motion in transport, exploring factors such as human response to vibrations, flood risk to bridges and balance.

Creative Industries

VSimulators provides a platform for the development of new and novel creative techniques, as a tool for expression, performance and story telling.
