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 Factors and Comfort

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

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.

Health and Wellbeing

VSimulators supports extensive research into how people move, balance and respond to their moving surroundings, helping to create supportive programmes, environment designs and equipment.

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.


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

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.

Creative Industries

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