The aircraft is approximately the size of a Cessna 172, although its fore-and-aft wing canard configuration is unusual and lends itself to enhanced performance.
Root-mean-squares for 8 speeds in the fore-and-aft axis were 3, 4, 6, 8, 10, 24, 30, and 59 m/s.
In a VE, as users navigate mainly in the fore-and-aft axis, it is expected that linear vection will occur (i.
2 m/s root mean square (RMS) in the fore-and-aft axis were investigated in a full factorial between-subject experiment with eight conditions.
Inspection of Table 1 indicates that the navigation movements are dominantly in the fore-and-aft and the yaw axes.
Figure 5 illustrates the changes of the total scores and Figure 6 illustrates the changes of the nausea (N), oculomotor (O), and disorientation (D) subscores as function of fore-and-aft navigation speeds.
Comparison of Figures 5 and 6 shows that as the fore-and-aft RMS speeds increased from 3 to 30 m/s, changes in total score had a pattern similar to those of nausea ratings and vection ratings, increasing with increased speeds up to 10 m/s RMS, beyond which the values became steady.
At a speed of 59 m/s in the fore-and-aft axis, the speed in the yaw axis was 68 m/s, much slower than 160 m/s.
10 m/s RMS in the fore-and-aft direction) at which the vection and nausea ratings were at their maximum will be specific to this study, the pattern of change will be generally applicable.
